MARINE CORPS GENERAL 0RRER8. 



General Order, HEADQUARTERS, 

No. 1. U. S. MARINE CORPS. 

Washington. December SI, 1908. 

1. Attention is called to paragraph 353. U. S. Army Regu- 
lations, 1908, relative to post exchanges. 

2. Hereafter the commanding- officers of all posts of the 
Marine Corps will comply with the requirements of said 
paragraph, making their reports to the Adjutant and In- 
spector. U. S. M. C. 

3. The commanding officers of all posts in the Phillippine 
Islands will forward their reports through the Assistant 
Adjutant and Inspector, U. S. M. C, Manila. P. I., and the 
commanding officers of all posts on the Pacific Coast, in 
Guam and the Hawaiian Islands will forward their reports 
through the assistant Adjutant and Inspector, U. S. M. C, 
San Francisco, California. 

4. The Comptroller of the Treasury has decided that a 
stoppage can be made against the account of a man for an 
indebtedness to a properly authorized Post Exchange for an 
amount not exceeding that authorized by regulations. This 
amount in the Marine Corps has been fixed at one-third of 
one month's pay. On the 20th of June. 1904. the Secretary 
of the Navy authorized the establishment of past exchanges 
at all marine barracks, excepting where post traders then 
existed. 

5. Such checkages, made according to paragraph 352, 
Army Regulations, 1908, are to be limited to cases of trans- 
fers or discharges- from the post, between pay days, under 
such circumstances as to make it impracticable for the en- 
listed men concerned to settle, in cash, their indebtedness 
upon departure or discharge. The amount of authorized 
checkages will be noted on the pay-roll and upon the trans- 
fers or discharge in the same manner as over-issues of clo- 
thing, and other authorized checkages. In the case of such 
authorized stoppages, commanding officers will, in addition, 
have the amounts made out on the form of voucher adopted 
for that purpose, which may be obtained by requisition in 
the ordinary manner: these vouchers to be rendered in dup- 
licate to the pay officer. 



(2) 

6. The post exchange officer, when he is not the only offi- 
cer attached to the post, must be regularly detailed as such 
by the commanding officer. 

7. When practicable, the services of barbers and laundry- 
men will be provided by the post exchange under such rules 
as the post exchange council may prescribe. 

8. All debts due the United States must be charged before 
a post exchange checkage can be made, so that the full 
amount of a post exchange checkage can not be charged on 
the pay rolls if it thereby renders the man concerned over- 
paid: in other words, in debt to the Government. This does 
not. of course, prevent the checkage being made as soon as 
the man may have a sufficient amount to his credit to cover 
the same. 

9. Post exchange officers may receive checks from officers 
in payment for indebtedness, but they will under no circum- 
stances cash checks from anyone. 

10. All Post Exchange, Post Treasurer and Company 
Funds will be deposited in a national bank or government 
depository.

every twenty men, shall receive the same compensation in 
addition to their monthly pay as is or may hereafter be al- 
lowed enlisted men of the Navy under like circumstances. 
Provided, that Marines must be under regular detail for a 
whole month to be entitled to this extra compensation. 

7. Paragraph 525-3. U. S. Navy Regulations, will apply to 
the detail of messmen. Under no circumstances will non- 
commissioned officers be so detailed. 

8. Mess sergeants, entitled to six dollars per month in ad- 
dition to their regular pay under the act approved May il, 
1908*. duly detailed and assigned to the supervision of messes 
of enlisted men, are authorized as follows: 

[a] One "for each company mess, where . detach- 
ments of enlisted men of the Marine Corps are regu- 
larly organized into companies of substantially the 
same strength as those of the Infantry of the Army, 
and appear as su.ch upon muster rolls rendered to 
these Headquarters and upon pay rolls of the Pay- 
master's Department. 

[b] Where detachments of such companies mess 
separately, in number habitually greater than 
twenty-five, one additional mess sergeant is allowed. 

[c] Mess sergeants will habitually be detailed from 
the grade of sergeant. 

9. Where organizations or detachments are merged into a 
general mess, or where there is no company organization 
such as described in paragraph 8, mess sergeants will not be 
detailed; but additional compensation will be given a mess 
steward, one for each general mess, as provided in para- 
graph 330, U. S. Army Regulations, 1908. 

10. The word "'companies" employed in paragraph 8 does 
not apply to companies organized at posts within the United 
States.

No. 3. U. S. MARINE CORPS. 

Washington. December 21, 1908. 

1. Hereafter the following- instructions concerning strag- 
glers and deserters will be carried out: 

2. No articles of outer uniform clothing other than such as 
may be necessary to enable them to appear decently clad, 
shall be issued to enlisted men who surrender, or who are 
delivered at a marine barracks as stragglers or deserters 
from the U. S. Marine Corps, and who are to be recom- 
mended for trial by general court-martial. 

3. Such men will be retained in confinement, and in cases 
of conviction will be transferred to prison in the clothing 
worn by them when received into the custody of the Marine 
Corps authorities. 

4. When recruits transferred from a recruiting office to a 
barracks desert en route, the recruiting officer will be in- 
formed of the fact at the time the man is declared a deserter. 

5. When a straggler from another post is apprehended or 
surrenders within ten days from the time of his original ab- 
sence, the commanding officer will immediately telegraph 
this information to the commanding officer of the barracks 
from which said man is absent. 

6. Upon the receipt of such a telegram the commanding 
officer will retain the staff returns until orders as to their 
disposition are received from these Headquarters. 

7. In forwarding the staff returns of any enlisted man 
dropped as a deserter, a notation will be made on his des- 
criptive book as to whether a reward has been made for his 
apprehension and delivery, and if so, the amount of such 
reward. 

8. Whenever a reward is offered for the apprehension and 
delivery of a straggler or a deserter, a copy of it will be 
sent to the office of the Adjutant and Inspector. 

9. When an enlisted man who has been absent without 
leave from any cause for a greater period than thirty days 
is delivered or appreheneded, or one who has been so absent 
for a greater period than ninety days surrenders or delivers 
himself at a post, a full report on the case will be made to 
these Headquarters, transmitting with this report a written 
statement by the man, a list of witnesses and, if practicable, 
statements of his accounts from the date of delivery or sur- 



(2) 

render to the date of the report. No disciplinary action in 
the case will be taken until instructions from this office are 
received. 

10. If a reward has been paid for delivery this fact and the 
amount will be stated in this report, and the amount wilJ 
be deducted in the statement of pay account. 

11. In order to have at hand and immediately available 
for use before general courts-martial the necessary evidence 
for the trial of enlisted men of the Marine Corps who have 
been declared deserters, upon their return to the service, 
and to aid courts-martial in determining whether such men 
are guilty of desertion or of absence without leave, this office 
directs that hereafter upon the desertion of enlisted men of 
the Corps entries be made in their descriptive books at the 
time of desertion in regard to such of the following circum- 
stances attending the desertion as may be practicable in each 
case: disposal of effects, especially uniforms; secret prepara- 
tions for desertion: procuring plain clothes; declarations to 
comrades: a known desire to quit the service: taking passage 
for a distant point: escape from arrest and quitting the im- 
mediate vicinity of his station and duty: the commission of 
an offense and fear of punishment therefor. As attending 
the departure of the accused, a report as to whether he left 
any effects of value upon departure is the one most easily 
ascertainable. A report of every possible circumstance con- 
nected with the accused*s departure and return to the Marine 
Corps will be noted. 

12. When a deserter surrenders oris delivered it is desired 
that the report of his return include statements in regard to 
the following points: the manner of his return, whether 
forced or voluntary, or if voluntary, through fear of arrest: 
the physical condition of the person so returned, as stated 
by the medical officer: statements made to prove identity; 
statements on surrender as to whether he is a deserter or 
straggler: whether in plain clothes or uniform upon return; 
condition of clothing, whether adequate or not for the sea- 
son and part of country from which returned, and whether 
ragged or not.

1. In order to comply with Article 189, U. S. Army Trans- 
port Service Regulations, 1905, it is hereby directed that 
every detachment which is transferred from posts in the 
United States for embarkation in a U. S. Army Transport 
en route for service in the Philippine Islands be provided 
with the certificate of a naval surgeon to the effect that its 
members have been duly inspected and are protected against 
smallpox. 

2. In case an epidemic disease makes its appearance among 
any detachment of marines en route for embarkation on a 
transport, the commanding officer of the detachment will 
at once notify the senior army surgeon at the place of sail- 
ing, by telegraph. 

3. The commanding officer of each post of the Marine 
Corps from which a detachment leaves en route for embar- 
kation on a transport will order the commanding officer of 
the detachment to carry the above into effect should occa- 
sion arise.

Xo. 5. U. S. MARINE CORPS. 

Washington. December 21, 1908. 

The following Executive Order is hereby promulgated for 
the information of officers of the U. S. Marine Corps: 

"1. Officers of the United States Marine Corps, of what- 
ever rank, will be examined physically and undergothe tests 
herein prescribed at least once in every two years: the time 
of such examinations to be designated by the Commandant 
of the Corps so as to interfere as little asibossible with their 
regular duties, and the tests to be carried out in the United 
States between May first and July first, as the Commandant 
of the Corps may direct, and on foreign stations between 
December first and February first. 

••2. All field officers will be required to take a riding- 
test of ninety miles, this distance to be covered in three days. 
Physical examinations before and after riding-, and the riding- 
tests, to be the same as those prescribed for the United 
States Army by General Orders. Xo. 79 (paragraph 3), War 
Department. May 14. 1908. 

••.'>. Line officers of the Marine Corps in the grade of cap- 
tain or lieutenant will lie required to walk fifty miles, this 
distance to be divided into three days, actual marching time, 
including- rests, twenty hours. In battle, time is essential 
and ground may have to lie covered on the run: if these offi- 
cers are not equal to the average physical strength of their 
companies the men will be held back, resulting' in unneces- 
sary loss of life and probably defeat: Company officers will, 
therefore, be required, during- one of the marching- periods, 
to double-time two hundred yards, with a half minute's rest: 
then three hundred yards, with one minute's rest: and then 
complete the test in a two hundred yard dash, making' in all 
seven hundred yards on the double-time, with one and one- 
half minutes' rest. The physical examinations before and 
after the tests to be the same as provided for in paragraph 
2 of this order. 

"4. The Commandant of the Marine Corps will be required 
to make such of the above tests as the Secretary of the 
Xavy shall direct. 

"5. Field officers of the permanent staff of the Marine 
Corps who have arrived at an age and rank which renders 
it highly improbable that they will ever be assigned to any 
duty requiring participation in active military operations 
in (hi field, may. upon their own application, be excused from 



the physical test, but not from the physical examination. 
prescribed above. Such a request, however, if granted, will 
be regarded by the executive authority as conclusive reason 
for not selecting the applicant for any future promotion in 
volunteer rank, or for assignment, selection or promotion to 
a position involving participation in operations of the line 
of the Marine Corps, or in competition with officers of the 
line of the Marine Corps for any position.

1. Paragraph 2. page 5. of the circular of "Instructions 
for the Guidance of Those Concerned in Making- and For- 
warding Identification Records. " dated June 10. 1907. is 
hereby amended to read as follows: 

The recruit will then be required to sign his name in full 
in the place provided for "signature of recruit" and immed- 
iately thereafter to make a rolled impression of the index 
linger of the right hand in the space reserved for that pur- 
pose, both signature and signature-print to be made in the 
presence of the commissioned officer who is to sign the record. 
The fact that the recruit may be left-handed will not be con- 
sidered in taking the signature impression. In taking this 
impression of the right index finger the holder should not 
be used, as there is liability of blurring the other impres- 
sions in replacing the form in the holder. 

2. Hereafter, upon the arrival of an enlisted man at a 
post or recruiting office, who was enlisted or reenlisted 
prior to July 1. 1907. and whose descriptive book does not 
show an identification record to have been made, his prints 
will be taken, the fact entered in his descriptive book, and 
the slip promptly forwarded to the Adjutant and Inspector.

Major-General, Commandant. 



General Order HEADQUARTERS. 

No. 7. U. S. MARINE CORPS. 

Washington, January 27, 1909. 

1. As it is considered that the presence of reenlisted men 
in a detachment of marines is conducive to discipline and to 
efficiency in the performance of its duties, and in order to 
induce men to continue in the service, and give them the 
benefit of the increased compensation due to their being- 
awarded good conduct medals, etc., it is deemed advisable 
that any man, the average of whose markings /or discharge 
is four and one half (4 1-2) or over, be recommended for 
character ' 'Excellent" upon discharge and for a good con- 
duct medal or bar as the case may be: the character proposed 
to be given, to be noted on the letter transmitting the staff 
returns, and the certificate relative to the good conduct 
medal, or bar. to be inserted under the head of •'Remarks"* 
on the old style descriptive list, or on page 5 of the descrip- 
tive book: said certificate to be signed by the commanding 
officer transmitting the staff returns. 

2. The above remarks (in reference to good conduct 
medals) will not be applicable to a man who has been legal- 
ly convicted by a couat-martial and the sentence approved 
by proper authority. Excepting that in cases of men who 
have been convicted by Army summary court-martial while 
on detached duty with the Army where the offense is of a 
minor character and such as would ordinarily come under 
the cognizance of the commanding officer under the Navy 
Regulations, the conviction will be given the same consid- 
eration as is given punishments awarded by commanding 
officers under said Regulations; but where the offense is of 
such a serious character as would ordinarily be punishable 
by a summary cour-martial under the Navy Regulations the 
conviction will be given the same weight as a conviction by 
a naval summary court-martial. 

3. In determining the character to be given, the nature of 
a man's service during his enlistment, as shown by his des- 
criptive list, or book, will be carefully considered, due 
weight being given to the markings of his former command- 
ing officers and the opportunities possessed by them for arriv- 
ing at their conclusions, as indicated by the periods the man 
served under each. 



(2) 

4. Undue weight shall not be given the markings received 
for service rendered as a recruit. 

5. Before the staff returns of a man are forwarded to these 
Headquarters for discharge, his commanding officer will 
enter on the descriptive list, or book, the markings to which 
the man is entitled for service at that post. Below that line 
will be entered the marks to which the man appears to be 
entitled for the whole of his enlistment; said markings be- 
ing determined from an examination of his previous mark- 
ing's, offenses committed and punishments awarded. 

6. In the case of a man who has been legally convicted by- 
court-martial during his current enlistment (excepting in 
cases of conviction by Army summary court-martial where 
the offense is of a minor character, as described in para- 
graph 2 above), but the average of whose markings for 
discharge is four and one half (4 1-2) or over, he will be con- 
sidered eligible for character "'Excellent" but not for a good 
conduct medal.

Regulations Governing the Management and Running of 
Marine Corps Laundries. 

1. a. The laundry will be run under the supervision of 
the Post Quartermaster, who will monthly certify to the 
Post Exchange Officer the individual indebtedness of the 
men. The Post Exchange Officer will take up these amounts 
as due the post exchange and collect them in the regular- 
manner. 

b. These amounts will be in addition to the regular in- 
debtedness of one-third allowed enlisted men by the Navy 
Regulations. 

c. In the case of transfer of enlisted men who are indebt- 
ed to the post laundry, collections will be made through 
the Paymaster's department in the same manner that check- 
ages and collections are now made for moneys due the post 
exchange. 

d. Separate books will be kept for the laundry under the 
personal supervision of the Post Quartermaster. 

2. a. The laundry will be run at as near cost as possible, it 
not being the intention that the institution shall be a money- 
making proposition, but that the work for the post shall be 
done as cheaply as is consistent with good work. 

b. The profits from the laundry will be placed in a sink- 
ing fund for the improvement of the laundry and such 
other legitimate expenses connected with the same as may 
be recommended from time to time by the Post Council of 
Administration, subject to the approval of the Commanding 
Officer. 

c. The prices charged and the number of persons employed 
by the post laundry will be fixed from time to time by the 
Post Council of Administration, subject to the approval of 
the Commanding Officer. 

d. The monthly rate charged each man for his laundry 
will not be reduced below fifty cents at any time without 
the approval of the Commandant of the Marine Corps. 

e. The number of pieces to be laundered per week for 
each man shall not exceed sixteen (16); all pieces in excess 



of that number shall be charged for at the rate of one and 
one-half cents apiece. For washing- blue blouses, blue 
trousers and blankets an extra charge will be made, at the 
rate of ten cents apiece. 

3. The necessary fuel will be furnished by the Govern- 
ment in exchange for the washing of mattress-covers, sheets, 
pillow-cases and kitchen-towels.

to have their work done at the post laundry, for sanitary 
reasons. 

b. Each man shall collect and deliver his own laundry. 

5. a. One enlisted man, to be known as ''Chief Laundry- 
man," will 'have charge of the sorting-room and of the re- 
ceiving and issuing of the laundry, and will also keep the 
laundry books. He will be paid $15.00 per month, from the' 
laundry receipts. 

b. One private will be employed as engineer and fireman, 
and to do such work in the laundry as the superintendent 
may direct. He will be paid $15.00 per month, from the 
laundry receipts. 

c. One practical laundry man, either a civilian, at $45.00 
per month, or an enlisted man, at $15.00 per month, shall 
have charge of the laundry, these amouunts to be paid from 
the laundry receipts. 

d. Four women will be employed to do the ironing, at a 
salary not to exceed $4.00 per week, to be paid from the 
laundry receipt s. 

6. The foregoing regulations will be subject to such 
change as the Commandant of the Marine Corps may deem 
necessary or advisable. For this purpose the Post Quarter- 
master at such posts as are now or may hereafter be equip- 
ped with laundries will submit such recommendations, from 
time to time, as may seem advisable with a view to giving 
effect to the object for which such laundries are intended, viz: 
thoroughness of work, cleanliness and economical adminis- 
tration.

Washington, March is. 1909. 

The provisions of General Order No. 7, Headquarters U. 
S. Marine Corps, dated January 27, 1909, are hereby so far 
modified that convictions by deck court will not bar enlisted 
men of the Marine Corps from being' recommended, upon 
discharge, for good-conduct medals. 

G. F. ELLIOTT, 
Major- General. Commandant. 



General Order HEADQUARTERS 

No. 14. U. S. MARINE CORPS. 

Washington. March 16, 1909. 

1. To obviate the necessity of frequently returning- en- 
listment papers for correction as to age, the method of cal- 
culating the approximate age shall conform with Article 
1130 (g), U. S. Navy Regulations, 1905, especially upon the 
enlistment of apprentices. 

2. When an applicant who appears to be eligible presents 
himself for enlistment he will be required to carefully write 
his name in full in the proper place on the declaration. 
Should the applicant's signature not be legible, or any part 
of it indistinct or confused, he should be required to spell 
his name while one of the recruiting detail writes it on the 
enlistment paper letter by letter. Similar letters such as 
"n" and "u" should be carefully distinguished. Variations 
in the spelling of common names should be carefully noted, 
as ''Frederic," "Eredric," ''Frederick," etc. 

3. Enlistment papers should be carefully gone over to 
make sure that they are complete and correct in every re- 
spect. If the recruit has enlisted at a post his enlistment 
paper should be forwarded at once to the Adjutant and In- 
spector. If the recruit has enlisted at a recruiting office, his 
enlistment paper should be forwarded to the Adjutant and 
Inspector immediately upon his transfer from the recruiting 
office, with the date of transfer noted thereon. 

1. The term "enlistment paper" will apply to the new 
combination sheet containing the oath and declaration on 
one side, and a description of the recruit on the other. 

5. The term "descriptive book" will apply to the new 
style descriptive list in book form. 

(5. Under "Family History" should be given a concise 
statement of the family history of the recruit, such as "sat- 
isfactory:" or some specific occurrence should be noted. 

7. "When and Where Last Examined" and "State of 
Health since Last Examination" apply only to reenlisted 
men. 

8. Attention is called to the following rules adopted by the 
War and the Navy Departments, and approved by the Pres- 
ident of the United States: 



"Recruiting- officers of the Army and Marine Corps 
are authorized to apply direct to the Major General, 
Commandant, or to The Adjutant General, respec- 
tively, for verification of prior service claimed, 
when the applicant is unable to produce his dis- 
charge certificate, or when there is evidence of 
fraud or error therein." 

The application to The Adjutant General of the Army will 
contain a statement of the prior army service claimed, and 
such other information as may be necessary. These appli- 
cations will be made by telegraph. A copy of the applica- 
tion and the original of The Adjutant General's reply will 
be attached to the enlistment papers, or forwarded to the 
Adjutant and Inspector, in case the applicant is not enlisted. 

9. Each applicant for enlistment in the U. S. Marine Corps 
will be questioned as to whether or not he is a member of 
the organized militia of a State or Territory. Should it 
appear that an applicant is a member of the organized mili- 
tia, the recruiting officer will, before enlisting the man, 
require official evidence of his acquittal from the obligations 
of service therein, either by formal discharge, or by letter 
or telegram from the Adjutant General or other competent 
authority of the state or territory. 

10. Recruiting officers will closely question every appli- 
cant for enlistment as to whether he is the sole support of 
aged parents or minor children, and will reject him in case 
it transpire that there are those who are thus dependent 
upon him. 

11. When the enlistment of apprentices is authorized, 
they will be transferred, upon enlistment, to the Marine 
Barracks, Washington, D. C. 

12. The following requirements in the enlistment of ap- 
prentices will be adhered to: 

Age, over 15 years, under 17 years. 

Minimum height.. 59 inches 

Minimum weight 90 pounds 

Minimum chest circumference 29 inches 

Minimum expansion 2 inches 

Minimum vision (Snellen) 18-20 

The applicant must further be of good muscular develop- 
ment, of good moral character, and must agree to serve un- 
til he reaches the age of twenty-one. The written consent 
of the parents, surviving parent or guardian, executed in 
the presence of the recruiting officer, is necessary on the 
enlistment paper. 



(3) 

13. Before minors are enlisted, the following- form will 
be filled out: 



I We 

U 



do hereby 



i we are the parents 

certify that < I am the and only surviving parent of 

(lam the legally appointed guardian 

; that the said 

is years and months of age: 

that - T hereby freely give \ .coinsent to his enlisting in the 
( J- i my 

United States Marine Corps for the period of FOUR YEARS, 

and, further, that - j hereby waive all claim upon the time and 

services of the said 

during the remainder of his minority. 



Father. 

Guardian. 

Mother. 



Witness: 



11. Minors will not be enlisted, under any circumstances, 
without special authority from the Major General, Com- 
mandant. Such authority will not be requested, under any 
circumstances, unless the applicant is especially desirable. 

15. The instructions contained in the pamphlet, N. M. S. 
Sp. 4-26-7, entitled ''Extracts from Regulations and Instruc- 
tions in Relation to the Physical Examination of Recruits 
for Enlistment in the Navy and Marine Corps," prepared 
by the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, Navy Department, 
will be strictly adhered to in all cases. 

16. In case an exceptionally desirable applicant is 1-2 inch 
under height, or 15 lbs. under weight, application for waivers 
should be made to the Major General, Commandant. 

17. This office will hold recruiting officers accountable 
for the enlistment of men who may be rejected upon reex- 



*) 

amination at a post, as it would appear that the examina- 
tion was carelessly made and in violation of the instructions 
in force, and under the regulations the expense incurred in 
enlisting- such men may be checked against the pay of the 
officer responsible. 

18. Recruiting officers will instruct the medical examiners 
in their recruiting districts not to accept for first enlistment 
men whose abdominal walls show by scar that they have 
been subjects of operation for appendicitis, as a large num- 
ber of these cases in time develop weakness of the abdomi- 
nal wall in or about the scar: that pains in the affected 
regions are common, and the existence of the scar gives a 
sufficient reason for a claim for relief from duty, which, 
though it may be false, is practically impossible to disprove. 

19. When money is issued by a recruiting officer to any 
member of a recruiting party, or to any recruit enlisted in 
his district, or issued by a member of a recruiting party to 
any recruit, such as money for meals or transfers in transit 
from a recruiting office to barracks or other point to which 
recruits or members of a recruiting party are transferred, 
memorandum receipts will be taken from each individual 
receiving cash, and in cases of parties, when the entire 
amount is given to one man. memorandum receipts will so 
state in full, and the purpose indicated for which money is 
given. All such receipts will be retained by the officer in 
charge of the recruiting district for future reference, should 
it at any time be claimed that the proper amount of cash 
was not given. 

20. All enlisted men who are on recruiting duty when 
their enlistments expire will be discharged at the recruiting- 
office or station where they are serving. AVhen the descrip- 
tive list of a man on recruiting duty has been sent to these 
headquarters for the preparation of his discharge, the man 
will not be traesferred from the station designated for dis- 
charge. 

21. Should it be found necessary to send any man on re- 
cruiting duty, or any man on furlough reporting - as ''sick" 
at any recruiting office, to a hospital, he will not be sent to 
a civil hospital, unless a Government hospital (Naval, Army 
or Marine Hospital Service) is not available. 

22. All changes of station of enlisted men in recruiting 
districts will be reported to the Adjutant and Inspector, 



(5) 

immediately after such change is made. This applies to 
men transferred from one recruiting- office to another, from 
the recruiting district to another station, or from a station 
to the district, but is only to include members of the re- 
cruiting- party and not recruits. 

23. The Paymaster, U. S. Marine Corps, in the payment 
of enlisted men on recruiting- duty, will send to the officer 
in charg-e of each recruiting- district, individual checks for 
the payment of each enlisted man on duty in his district. 
When practicable these checks will be delivered to the en- 
listed men in person, but when not, they will be forwarded 
to them by registered mail. The Quartermaster will furnish 
each officer in charg-e of a recruiting- district with postag-e 
stamps to be used in covering- the expense of registering- let- 
ters containing checks forwarded to enlisted men at stations. 

21. The Comptroller of the Treasury decided, under date 
of February 13, 1907, that enlisted men of the Marine Corps 
may have the rank and receive the pay and allowances of 
sergeant and corporal of the infantry of the Army, in the 
same manner and under the same conditions that enlisted 
men of the Army may receive the same, by virtue of the 
Act of Congress approved February 2, 1901, (31 Stat. 75(5), 
and paragraph 852, Army Regulations, 1901. 

25. The Major General, Commandant, directs that the 
officers in charge of recruiting districts appoint and muster 
at each station, in their respective districts, not to exceed 
one enlisted man of the recruiting party a sergeant and one 
a corporal. 

2fi. The appointment of these sergeants and corporals will 
be governed by the following paragraphs of the Army Reg- 
ulations. 1908, substituting ''"The Major General Comman- 
dant," for "The Adjutant General of the Army," and '"The 
War Department" — 

"853. All enlisted men prior to their assignment 
to general recruiting duty will be transferred to the 
general service, infantry. The Recruiting Officer 
in charge of each recruing station, having first sat- 
isfied himself of the soldiers' fitness for the positions, 
will announce in orders from his station, and muster 
from the date of such announcement, one member 
of his recruiting party as sergeant and one as cor- 
poral. Such orders will be entered in the records 
of the recruiting station and a copy of each order 
will be forwarded to the Adjutant General of the 
Army; a copy will also be furnished to each soldier 
concerned. 



(6) 

1 '854. Members of recruiting parties announced 
and mustered as sergeants or corporals will not be 
reduced while performing such duty without the 
approval of the Adjutant General of the Army. 
Their appointments as sergeants or corporals will. 
however, terminate whenever they are relieved from 
recruiting duty, or when the stations at which they 
are serving are discontinued, unless they shall be 
assigned to other recruiting stations at which there 
are vacancies in their respective grades. The re- 
cruiting officer will in every case announce in orders 
the date of the termination of an appointment as 
sergeant or corporal and furnish copies of each order 
as indicated in paragraph 853. 

'•855. All assignments of enlisted men to the gen- 
eral recruiting service will be as privates, the ques- 
tion of their promotion as sergeants or corporals 
being for determination after their fitness and cap- 
acity shall have been demonstrated. Individual ap- 
plications for transfer to the general recruiting 
service will be forwarded, whenever practicable, 
through the proper commanding officers, who will 
endorse thereon their recommendations, based upon 
service and merit, and also a statement of the soldier's 
fitness for recruiting duty, especially as regards 
clerical ability and knowledge of Army papers. The 
transfers will be made from time to time, as the in- 
terests of the service require, in orders from the 
War Department.*' 

27. Note will- be made, on page 5 of the descriptive book, 
of appointments and reductions, in the latter case giving the 
reasons therefor. Sergeants and corporals of the recruiting 
service will be entered on the muster-rolls, and pay-rolls as 
of those grades, and entry will be made in the column of 
"Remarks" showing the nature of the appointment, by whom 
made, its date, and the station for which appointment is 
made. In event of revocation of any such appointment. 
copies of the order of revocation, showing the approval 
thereof by the Major General. Commandant, will be fur- 
nished as provided for in paragraph 26, except that no copy 
need be furnished to the Major General. Commandant. 
Wherever new assignments of such enlisted men to other 
recruiting stations are made, a new letter of appointment 
shall be issued and copies furnished as provided for in para- 
graph 26. 

28. In order to secure uniformity in the manner of making 
appointments and reductions of noncommissioned officers on 
recruiting service, the following forms will be observed:

for advertising, rent of office or employment of medical ex- 
aminers, will be addressed to the Quartermaster, U. S. M. 
C, and forwarded through the Commandant. 

33. In the case of medical examiners, when the Quarter- 
master shall have approved the expense involved, the re- 
cruiting officers, themselves, will appoint the medical

"No advertisement, notice or proposal, for any 
executive department of the government, or for any 
bureau thereof, or for any office therewith connected, 
shall be published in any newspaper whatever, ex- 
cept in pursuance of a written authority for such 
publication from the head of such department." 

35. Recruiting officers will be held strictly • accountable 
for the prompt return of certificates of publication of news-

1. The circular letters of this office No. 10446, dated Feb- 
ruary 18, 190S, and No. 18781. dated April 1, 1908. are hereby 
withdrawn, and the following instructions will be substi- 
tuted therefor: 

2. In order to secure uniformity in the manner of carry- 
ing extra and special duty men on the muster rolls, it is di- 
rected that enlisted men detailed to perform specific services 
which remove them temporarily from the ordinary duty 
roster of the post, detachment, or organization to which 
they belong, be shown on the muster rolls as on "extra duty"' 
if their work is such as to entitled them to increased com- 
pensation 'therefor from the Government; otherwise on 
'"special duty." As, for example, 

''Extra duty, clerk, O. O." 

"Extra duty, teamster." 

"Special duty, post exchange steward." 

"Special duty, mail orderly," etc. 

3. The inclusive dates will be added to the entry on the

a shorter period than that for which the roll is rendered. 

4. Sergeants major, quartermaster sergeants, and first 
sergeants, when performing duties pertaining to their re- 
spective ranks, should not be shown on the muster rolls as 
on extra or special duty: but in the recapitulation and in 
the "strength and distribution" reports, they should be 
shown as "on duty". In all cases, however, the entry in 
column of "Remarks" should show the duty performed, as, 
for example, "In charge of clothing room:" "In charge of 
Arms and Accoutrements," etc. 

5. No man will be detailed on extra duty, which will en- 
title him to increased compensation from the Government, 
without authority of the Major General, Commandant.

tions, other than those by wire, containing- the names of 
officers or enlisted men shall in every instance give both the 
Christian and the surname of such officers and enlisted men

book, (especially on pages 12 and 13, "Marks and Scars,") 
such alteration will be make in red ink and properly authen- 
ticated by the initials of the officer making the change. 

3. When a marine is discharged by medical survey, a 
complete statement of the disease or disability and the cause 
thereof will be entered on page 14 ("Sickness and Disability") 
and properly authenticated. 

4. In order that the files of the Adjutant and Inspector's 
office may at all times be in such condition as to furnish 
correct information as to the whereabouts of the enlisted 
personnel of the Marine Corps, it is directed that com- 
manding officers of posts and of marine detachments of vessels 
immediately inform the Adjutant and Inspector, through 
proper official channels, of the names of all enlisted men 
transferred from their commands from time to time, either 
to ships or to stations.

No. 21. U. S. MARINE CORPS. 

Washington. April l, 1909. 

1. It is considered of great importance, in the interest of 
the Government, as well as that of all officers in charge of 
quartermaster's supplies, that the utmost vigilance be ex- 
ercised as to the possession of keys to any and all store- 
rooms, and that such officers personally and frequently in- 
spect and count public supplies in their charge. 

2. In this connection your attention is especially called to 
paragraphs 27, 39 and 162, of the System of Accountability, 
U. S. Marine Corps, 1904. The provisions of these regula- 
tions must be strictly adhered to. Particular attention is 
called to so much thereof as relates to the inspection and 
counting of Government property, the matter of keys to 
store-rooms, etc. Keys to store-rooms will not be allowed 
to leave the possession of the commissioned officer account- 
able and responsible, except in cases of emergency, and in 
every such instance the circumstances will be reported by 
him in writing to the commanding officer of the post, whose 
responsibility is defined in paragraph 26, System of Account- 
ability. This direction is to be taken literally; and only 
when urgent, and then for the briefest possible time, will 
the keys to store-rooms be out of the hands of the officers 
in charge thereof. 

3. An important consideration in this connection is that 
enlisted men, whether noncommissioned officers or privates, 
should not have their offices in the clothing room. Their 
books, sheets, returns, invoices, receipts, etc., must be kept 
in a room separated from the clothing-room. If the clerical 
labor of the enlisted men is performed in a room or office 
separated from the clothing room, the necessity for giving 
men the keys thereto will be done away with or reduced to 
the minimum, especially as the System of Accountability 
directs that no issue of clothing shall be made except in the 
presence of a commissioned officer, who should be the assis- 
tant quartermaster or post quartermaster. If the existing 
arrangement of rooms at any post is not such as to provide 
an office for the clerical force separated from the supply- 
room, the commanding officer will promptly report the fact 
and submit a recommendation looking to a rearrangement. 
(Any or all post orders in conflict with the foregoing will be 
modified to conform thereto.) 

4. Commanding officers and all other officers of the Marine 
Corps are informed that they are without authority of law 
to authorize the exchange of government clothing issued to 
enlisted persons of the Marine Corps, for other articles, 
however similar in kind, and whatever the circumstances 
surrounding the case may be. The authorization of such 
exchanges serves to prevent the prosecution, by the United 
States, of persons unquestionably guilty of fraud on the 
Government, or collusion therein, and is hereby expressly 
forbidden. 

G. F. ELLIOTT, 
Major- General, Commandant.

No. 22. U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

Washington, April I, 1909. 

It is directed that the greatest care and vigilance be ex- 
ercised by commanding- officers, post quartermasters, and 
in fact, all officers serving at posts who are in any way 
brought in contact with the ration, to see that not only do 
the component parts of the ration, as supplied by the con- 
tractor, conform in all respects as to quality with the re- 
quirements of the contract and specifications, but, further- 
more, to note that the quantities actually received are in 
accordance with the amounts called for in the ration check, 
so that there may be no question that, both in quantity and 
quality, the rations supplied the men conform in every par- 
ticular with the requirements of the contract. The under- 
signed believes that this is a question of the utmost 
importance to the Marine Corps, and the officers concerned 
are, therefore, enjoined to exercise the greatest vigilance 
in the matter herein referred to. 

It is further directed that at the end of each month there 
be submitted to this office a copy of the bill of fare of the 
command for said month.

1. Deposits made with navy pay officers: Command- 
ing- officers of marines and non-commissioned officers in 
charge of marine detachments paid by naval pay officers, 
shall render monthly reports to the Paymaster, U. S. Marine 
Corps, on form N. M. C. 436, as to all sums deposited during 
the month (whether made in cash or by checkage on pay- 
rolls) by enlisted men of their command. 

2. Bounty on re-enlistment, (a) Hereafter, upon the 
first muster for payment on first re-enlistment, within three 
mouths, of such men as were honorably discharged at the 
termination of their first enlistment period, as privates, 
musicians or trumpeters, credit will be given on pay-rolls 
as a "Miscellaneous Credit'' of a fixed sum, equal to three 
months' pay at the rate received at the time of discharge, 
which includes foreign-service pay and pay of every kind 
which such men were actually receiving at the time of dis- 
charge. The column of •'Remarks" on pay-rolls of shore 
stations will contain complete information supporting such 
credits. For example: 

"Honorably discharged at (station) . or on board (vessel), 
(date), (rank)." 

(b) Where forms of extra compensation are included in 
such bounties, remarks on pay-rolls should show, in addition 
to the above requirements, the kind of service for the per- 
formance of which extra compensation was being received 
at the time of discharge. Eorexample: • "Serving at time of 
discharge as cook, 1st. 2nd. 3rd, or 4th class: messman, sig- 
nalman, 1st. 2nd. or 3rd class; gunpointer (intermediate) 1st 
or 2nd class: gunpointer (secondary) 1st or 2nd class: expert 
rifleman, sharpshooter or marksman: or on extra duty as 
mechanic, artisan, school teacher, overseer, clerk, teamster 
or laborer/' 

(c) Upon the honorable discharge of any private, musician 
or trumpeter at the termination of his first enlistment 
period, where service is being performed for which forms 
of extra compensation are provided, his commanding officer 
will invariably enter, under '•Remarks,'" on the reverse side 
of such certificate, the kind of service for the performance 
of which such compensation was paid, in the same terms as 
are indicated in the preceding- paragraph. Commanding- 
officers will make similar entry in the Report of Discharges, 
column "Remarks." 

3. Unauthorized absence, (a) The pay-rolls from shore 
stations will contain, under the head of ''Remarks." all 
periods of unauthorized absence during the month, but no 
period less than 24 hours, or any fractional part of 24 hours, 
will be entered. In the proper column the necessary check- 
age for said unauthorized absence will be made. 

(b) Upon the transfer of a man from a post or from the 
marine detachment of a vessel, there will be entered in the 



descriptive list or book, which forms a part of his staff-re- 
turns, the aggregate of the unauthorized absences during 

his tour of duty at said post or on board said vessel. 

(c) Enlisted men will, in the future, be denied credit (for 
periods of such unauthorized absence, which involve check- 
ages of pay as above outlined.) in fixing the dates which 
will control the rate of pay prescribed by the Act of May 11, 
11)08, in determining dates of expiration of their periods of 
enlistment and for continuous service. The original dates, 
in each case, will be extended by an amount equal to the 
aggregate of unauthorized absences for which pay has been 
checked. 

(d) Checkages entered on pay-rolls of posts subsequent to 
the forwardingofthe staff returns to the Major-General. Com- 
mandant, for discharge will, if practicable, be immediately 
reported to Headquarters and to the Paymaster making final 
settlements. Should, however, the discharge papers be re- 
ceived at a post, in which the checkages above mentioned 
have not been entered by the paymaster making the settle- 
ment, commanding officers will, upon delivery of the papers, 
in cases of boys enlisted for minority, and men discharged 
for cause other than expiration of enlistment, collect where 
practicable, the total resultant overpayment, which in each 
case will consist of the pay and the clothing credit for the 
particular period of unauthorized absence, subsequent to 
sending the staff returns to the Major-General. Comman- 
dant. The amount thus collected will, unless otherwise di- 
rected, be transmitted to the paymaster making the settle- 
ment, and the man will be discharged upon the date men- 
tioned in the papers transmitted from these Headquarters. 

(e) Collections of sums resultant from checkages similar 
to those mentioned above, in case of men discharged by ex- 
piration of enlistment, are not involved, as such men are 
required to make good the periods of unauthorized absence, 
and will be so held to service by commanding officer's of 
posts. Reports of retention beyond the dates to which their 
accounts have been settled, will be promptly made to Head- 
quarters and to the paymaster settling the accounts. The 
muster, pay. and clothing rolls of the post will show, in all 
cases, the actual date of discharge, and the pay and clothing 
accounts will be credited and checked the number of days 
of unauthorized absence. 

(f) In the cases contemplated in the two preceding para- 
graphs, commanding officers will appropriately endorse on 
the copy of the final statement delivered to the soldier, the 
facts as to dates of discharge, checkages for absence with- 
out leave, collections or otherwise.

No. 26. U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

Washington. April 9, 1909. 
1: In the preparation of official telegrams an excessive 
number of words is being- used in the addresses, thus un- 
necessarily increasing expenses. It is. therefore, directed 
that such telegrams when intended for the Commandant, U. 
S. Marine Corps, be addressed. ''Marcorps. Washington, D. 
C.;" for the Adjutant and Inspector, ''Adjutant, Marcorps, 
Warhington, D. C.:" for the Quartermaster, •'Quartermaster. 
Marcorps, Washington, D. C.:" for the Paymaster. "Pay- 
master, Marcorps. Washington. D. C." 

2. The addresses of telegrams for other officials will con- 
tain only such words as are absolutely necessary to insure 
prompt and certain delivery. 

3. The minimum length of a government telegram is 
twenty (20) words, counting the address, the body, and the 
signature. That is. from two (2) to twenty (20) words may 
be sent to a given point for the same charge as one word. 
Therefore, unless a telegram, including address, body, and 
signature, exceeds twenty (20) words when written in 
ordinary English, it will not be enciphered, except for the 
purpose of secrecy. Every figure of a number is counted as 
a word. Therefore, all numbers not expressed in code will 
be spelled out in the least possible number of words. For 
example: "1100." which is counted as four (4) words, should 
be written "eleven hundred." 

4. The auditor for the Navy Department has ruled that 
all telegrams sent for the convenience or benefit of officers 
or enlisted men shall be charged immediately against those 
concerned. 

5. In the above connection, attention is called to the first 
two sentences of paragraph 5 and to paragraphs 6. 8. 10. 11. 
and 12, Article 1525. U. S. Navy Regulations, 1909.

upon, discharge shall be entered on page 5 of the descrip- 
tive-book (or under "Remarks" on the descriptive-list); as, 
for example: 

(a) "Staff-returns transmitted April 15, 1909. for discharge 
upon expiration of enlistment: recommended for character 
'Excellent:' recommended for a good-conduct medal upon 
reenlistment." 

(b) "Staff-returns transmitted April 15. 1909, for discharge

2. When an enlisted man has been sentenced by a sum- 
mary court-martial to bad-conduct discharge, his staff-re- 
turns shall be closed and transmitted for discharge at the 
same time that the report of his case as required by General 
Order No. 28, Headquarters U. S. Marine Corps. April 15. 
1909, is made, or as soon thereafter as practicable, unless he 
is to be transferred to another station or ship for discharge,

1. It having been brought to the attention of the under- 
signed that little consideration has been paid at some posts 
to the preliminary drills and instructions for target-prac- 
tice, it is directed that systematic instruction be held at 
least once a week in said preliminary drills, especially as 
regards the setting and use of sights, the use of the gun- 
sling, and the care and preservation of the rifle. The com- 
manding officer will give the necessary orders and will be 
held responsible that these drills and instructions do not be- 
come perfunctory. 

2. To train the soldier to shoot straight and to properly 
care for his rifle is the most important part of his instruc- 
tion, much more so than are the manual of arms or tactical 
drills, which latter will not be allowed to interfere with the 
necessary training for target-practice.

1. The present practice of issuing- revolvers and holsters 
on receipts from depots of supplies to individual officers, to be 
held indefinitely by the officers for their exclusive official 
use, will be discontinued. All officers who have in their pos- 
session revolvers and holsters that have been issued to them 
from any of the depots of supplies will turn such articles in 
to the accountable officer of the post, detachment afloat, or 
other organization with which they may be serving. Offi- 
cers who receive revolvers and holsters turned in in accor- 
dance with these instructions will give duplicate receipts 
therefor and will take the revolvers and holsters up on the 

return for the current quarter as received from 

(giving the name and station of the officer who turned in 
the articles). Officers who turn in revolvers and holsters 
in accordance with these instructions will forward original 
receipts obtained to the Quartermaster, U. S. Marine Corps. 
Washington, D. C, without delay: duplicates willbe retain- 
ed by the officers concerned for their own protection. Num- 
bers of revolvers will be stated on receipts. 

2. Hereafter an officer attached to a post or other organ- 
ization, and performing duty that requires him to be armed 
with a revolver, will be allowed to draw such arm from the 
officer accountable for the property of the organization on a 
memorandum receipt, but revolvers and holsters that may 
be so issued will be turned back to the accountable officer 
when no longer required, or upon the detachment of the offi- 
cer who holds the revolver. 

3. Any officer who desires to retain a revolver for his in- 
dividual and exclusive official use may do so by paying the 
cost price of such revolver to the accountable officer. The 
accountable officer will forward the proceeds of sales of re- 
volvers so disposed of to the Disbursing Assistant Quarter- 
master, U. S. Marine Corps, Washington, D. C. 

4. Field glasses and other articles of equipment that may 
be supplied officers for their official use, except books, will 
hereafter be issued subject to the provisions of this order 
relative to the issue of revolvers and holsters. 

5. Officers on independent duty removed from any post or 
organization who hold revolvers and holsters required to be 
turned in in accordance with these instructions, and who 
cannot conveniently deliver such revolvers and holsters to a 
regular accountable officer, will write to the Quartermaster. 
U. S. Marine Corps, Headquarters, Washington. D. C for 
instructions as to the disposition to be made of the articles.

General Order HEADQUARTERS 

No. 40. U. S. MARINE CORPS. 

Washington. October 19, 1909. 

1. On August 8, 1908, the Comptroller of the Treasury 
decided (15 Comp. Dec. 81) that the Act of May 11. 1908, pro- 
viding- '-that an enlistment shall not be regarded as com- 
plete until the soldier shall have made good any time lost 
during an enlistment period by unauthorized absences ex- 
ceeding one day." applies to the Marine Corps. 

2. The War Department has construed the part of the 
Act of May 11, 1908, above quoted, to apply only to enlist- 
ments entered upon after May 10, 1908, and decided that "if 
serving an enlistment entered upon prior to May 11, 1908,"' 
a man "can not be required, by sentence of court-martial or 
otherwise, to make good the time lost, except as provided 
in the 48th Article of War." 

(See Paragraph 131, Army Regulations, 1908, which. 
as amended by General Orders Nos. 128 and 190. War 
Department, 1908, and so far as pertains to this sub- 
ject, reads as follows: 

"131. An enlisted man who absents himself from 
his post or company without authority will forfeit 
all pay and allowances accruing during such absence, 
and. unless serving an enlistment entered upon prior 
to May 11. 1908. will be required to make good the 
time lost by such absence. If serving an enlistment 
entered upon prior to May 11. 1908. he can not be re- 
quired, by sentence of court-martial or otherwise, 
to make good the time lost, except as provided in 
the 48th Article of War: but the period of absence 
will not be regarded as service in the computation 
of continuous service pay under the laws existing 
prior to the act of Congress approved May 11. 190*. 
or for retirement, x x x 
See also the 48th Article of War, which reads as follows: 

"Art. 48. Every soldier who deserts the service of 
the United States shall be liable to serve for such 
period as shall, with the time he may have served 
previous to his desertion, amount to the full term 
of Ins enlistment: and such soldier shall be tried by 
;* court-martial and punished, although the term of 
his enlistment may nave elapsed previous to his be- 
ing apprehended and tried.") 

3. This construction of the War Department regarding 
enlistments entered upon prior to May 11. 1908. is hereby 
adopted by the Marine Corps, and commanding officers of 
posts and stations of the Corps are accordingly directed to 
forward immediately to the Major-General. Commandant. 



for discharge, the staff-returns of all men whose enlistments 
have expired, except men required to make good time lost 
as provided in the 48th Article of War, and to forward here- 
after for discharge, upon the expiration of the terms of en- 
listment, regardless of any absences without leave, the staff- 
returns of all men who enlisted prior to May 11, 1908, except 
men required to make good time lost as provided in the 48th 
Article of War. 

4. The total number of days of absence without leave dur- 
ing an enlistment will be noted under "Remarks" on the 
discharge certificate, and, in the proper place thereon, the 
fact that such time has been made good, or otherwise, will 
hereafter appear. Upon reenlistment of such a man, the re- 
cruiting officer, or officer enlisting him, will note this data 
in his descriptive book under the service record. A period 
of absence without leave, either in a current or a previous 
enlistment, must be considered, as heretofore, in determin- 
ing the date such man is entitled to increase of pay for 
continuous service.

concerned to make any necessary corrections in them prior 
to the man's actual departure from the station) and forward 
them, together with a., written statement of all available 
information concerning him that may be necessary for 
immediate discharge, so as to reach their destination with 
him, to the commanding officer of the above mentioned bar- 
racks or ship, as the case may require. 

3. Upon the receipt in this office of the Department's let- 
ter or memorandum authorizing the discharge of such a 
marine, a copy will be furnished each staff officer concerned

manding officer of said barracks or ship, as the case may re- 
quire, with instructions to discharge the man as soon as 
practicable after his arrival. The Adjutant and Inspector 
will be furnished with a copy of this endorsement.

ner and his staff-returns at the marine barracks, navyyard,

ner on board the U. S. S. Indepndence the commanding- 
officer should have his staff-returns closed for discharge, 
prepare and sign a discharge certificate and forward it, to- 
gether with the desriptive book of the man, to the Assistant 
Adjutant and Inspector, U. S. M. C, San Francisco, CaL. 
who will register the certificate and return it to the com- 
manding officer for completion, final signature and delivery. 

6. All business pertaining to these discharges should be 
transacted as expeditiously as possible, and a report of 
every discharge so issued, together with a certified copy of 
the final statement of account of the man concerned, should 
be transmitted to this office through the office of the Assis- 
tant Adjutant and Inspector. San Francisco. A supply of 
blank discharge certificates will be furnished the command- 
ing officers, marine barracks, navy yard. Mare Island, CaL,

7. General court-martial prisoners in Honolulu, Guam and 
the Philippine Islands who have been sentenced to dishon- 
orable discharge and are to be transferred to the West

Independence, instead of to the marine barracks, navy 
yard, Mare Island, CaL, as heretofore. 

8. The Adjutant and Inspector, the Quartermaster, and the 
Paymaster, U. S. M. C, will issue such instructions as they 
may deem necessary, concerning this subject, to the assis- 
tant staff officers of their respective departments. 

9. In order to afford ample time for the preparation of dis-

3. When a man receives a special course of training in 
small-arms target-practice at a camp of instruction, and is a 
competent coach, an entry to that effect shall be made in his 
descriptive book or his service-record by the commanding- 
officer of the camp. With the descriptive book the entry 
shall be made on a slip to be pasted opposite the page on 
which the target-records appear; with the service-record, 
on page 22, under "Remarks." 

1. (a) As the presence of reenlisted men in a military or- 
ganization conduces to discipline and efficiency, it is desired 
to encourage reenlistments in the Marine Corps, as far as 
practicable, by means of the increased compensation incident 
to the award of good-conduct medals and good-conduct medal 
bars. Hence it is deemed advisable that every man the av- 
erage of whose markings for discharge is four and one-half 
(1 1-2) or over, be recommended for character "Excellent'* 



and for a good-conduct medal or a bar. as the case may war- 
rant. 

(b) The latter statement, however, as far as the recom- 
mendation for a good-conduct medal is involved, does noi 
apply (1) in the case of a man who, during his current enlist- 
ment, has been convicted by a naval general or summary. 
or an army general, garrison, or regimental, court-martial, 
and whose sentence has been approved by proper authority: 
nor (2) in the case of a man who, during his current enlist- 
ment, has been convicted by an army summary court-martial 
of an offense ordinarily punishable by a naval summary 
court, and whose sentence has been likewise approved. 

(c) A man whose status is described in clause (b), but the 
average of whose markings for discharge is four and one-half 
(4 1-2) or over, is of course eligible for character "Excel- 
lent." 

(d) A man who, during his current enlistment, has been 
convicted by a naval deck-court-martial, or by an array 
summary court-martial of an offense ordinarily punishable 
by the commanding officer under the Navy Regulations, 
and the average of whose markings for discharge is four and 
one half (41-2) or over, is eligible for both character "Ex- 
cellent" and a good-conduct medal. 

5. Before staff-returns are sent to the Major-General, 
( 'ommandant, for discharge, the commanding officer of the 
post to which the man concerned is attached shall enter on 
the latter's descriptive list, or in his descriptive book or his 
service-record, as the case may be, the marks to which the 
man is entitled for service at that post. On the line next 
below said marks shall be entered, by the commanding offi- 
cer, those to which the man appears to be entitled for his 
enlistment as an entirety. The latter marks shall be deter- 
mined (a) by considering the individual markings of previous 
commanding officers, careful note being taken of their oppor- 
tunities for forming their judgments, as indicated by the 
length of the periods of service under said officers. (Undue 
weight shall not be given to markings for service as a re- 
cruit.); (b) by considering such offenses, if any, as have been 
committed (with the punishments awarded therefor) and the 
general character of the service rendered.

The following- communication is published to the ser- 
vice: — 

"NAVY DEPARTMENT, 

• ' Washington, November 20, 1909. 
"Sir: 

"It has come to the notice of the Department on 
numerous occasions that convening' and reviewing- authori- 
ties have ordered summary courts-martial to reconvene for 
various illeg-al purposes, namely: to take additional testi- 
mony to show the degree of criminality involved, or to con- 
clusively prove some minor point not covered in the original 
proceeding's; to introduce evidence of previous conviction 
not shown to have been originally introduced and recorded: 
to disregard the accused's plea of 'guilty' on the ground that 
his statement is inconsistent therewith, and to proceed as 
though the plea had been 'not guilty,' etc. 

''The courts have invariably followed the instructions 
contained in the order to reconvene. 

••Article 1791, U. S. Navy Regulations, 1909, specifically 
states: 

" '1. When a court is ordered to review it's pro- 
ceedings, new testimony shall not be brough forward 
in any shape. 

" - 2. The revision shall be strictly confined to a re- 
consideration of the matter already recorded in the 
proceedings, no part of which is to be amended, al- 
tered or annulled in any way.' 
"Any action taken in violation of the above quoted Arti- 
cle is indefensible and illegal and, of necessity, Compels a 
disapproval of the entire proceedings with the consequent 
detriment to military discipline and efficiency."

guidance of all concerned: 

••5 Payment of extra compensation for 
qualification in marksmanship as provided 
for in Paragraph 1, Circular No. 7. War De-

Circular No. 7, War Department, February 3, 1909. 
are construed so as to continue the payment of extra 
compensation for qualification in marksmanship until 
December 31. 1909,-instead of during the remainder 
of the current enlistment, in the cases of all enlisted 
men who qualified in 1908, and who. subsequently 
to the date of qualification and prior to February 3. 
1909. were reenlisted for or transferred to an organ- 
ization armed with the rifle in which qualification 
is not authorized, or were transferred for the con- 
venience of the Government to an organization not 
so armed: but no enlisted man who reenlists after 
February 3, 1909, in an organization armed with the 
rifle in which qualification is not authorized is en- 
titled to such extra compensation after reenlist- 
ment. No modification of Circular No. 7, War 
Department. February 3, 1909, has been made in 
the case of men who have been or may be trans-

"WAR DEPARTMENT. 
"Washington, October 6. 1909. 
'•Sir: 

''With reference to your request No. 20965-8 of 
September 28. 1909, herewith. I have the honor to 
inform you as follows: 

"1. The instructions of the War Deparment gov- 
erning- the classifications of men who attained quali- 
fications in marksmanship in the target year 1908, 
issued with a view to bringing such men within the 
scope of Army Regulations 1365, as amended by G. 
O. 21, War Department, February 3. 1909, are found 
in paragraph 1 of Circular 7. War Department, Feb- 
ruary 3, 1909, which provides that: 

"' 'All enlisted men who qualified during the 
target season of 1908, and were entitled to extra 
compensation on January 1. 1909, will continue 
to receive such extra compensation during the 
remainder of their current enlistment, provided 
that during that time they do not attain a higher 
classification and that they continue to be mem- 
bers of an organization armed with the rifle, or 
are transferred for the convenience of the Gov- 
ernment to some organization not so armed. ' 
''The term 'current enlistment' as used in the 
above quoted circular has reference to the enlist- 
ment in which a soldier is found to be serving on 
the date of said circular, February 3, 1909. and it is 
not essential that such enlistment be the one in 
which classification was attained in the regular 
practice season 1908. There is still another feature 
of this matter which is exemplified by a soldier who 
was discharged prior to January 1, 1909, and reen- 
listed within three months but after January 1, 1909. 
In this case it has been held by the Department 
that although the soldier was not actually in service 
on January 1, 1909. he was constructively in service 
on January 1, 1909, and therefore constructively en- 
titled on such date to pay under his 1908 classifica- 
tion, and is held as coming within the scope of 
paragraph 1 of Circular 7, and G. O. 21, War De- 
partment, 1909. 

"2. All men who qualiiied prior to 1908 and who 
were drawing increased compensation for holdover 
classifications on January 1, 1909, will continue to 
receive such extra compensation until December31, 
1909, or until the end of their enlistment, if the en- 
listment expires prior to December 31, 1909. and is 
not renewed. 

"3. That in the case of Private John J. Haley, 
U. S. Marine Corps, referred to in the attached 
paper, who is understood to have qualified as sharp- 
shooter in 1908 and to have reenlisted March 24. 
1909, the practice in corresponding cases in the 



(3) 

Army has been to continue to pay extra compensa- 
tion as sharpshooter for one year from date of reen- 
listment, provided that in the target season of 1909 
the man did not attain the classification of expert 
rifleman. 

•*4. The decision of the Secretary of War of 
March 30, 1909 (1499115) had particular reference to 
the pay of men whose extra compensation had 
lapsed December 31, 1908, or prior thereto, or who, 
on January 1, 1909, were receiving- pay under a re- 
duced classification granted in 1908. A soldier who 
under the terms of that decision was entitled to 
extra compensation for the remainder of his enlist- 
ment would, under the terms of paragraph 1365, 
Army Regulations, as amended by General Orders 
No. 21, War Department, 1909, continue to receive 
such extra compensation for one year from date of 
reenlistment, provided his reenlistment fulfilled the 
conditions named in said paragraph.

be assumed by the post-exchange, where such may exist; 
and such enlisted men or other persons as may perform 
these services within such commands will, upon such terms 
as may be agreed upon with the post-exchange officer and 
approved by the commanding officer of marines, be made

had to be surveyed for flat-foot. Because of this condition, 
they were unable to do ordinary guard duty, and could not 
have accompanied their respective detachments on the 
march, nor have participated in any other arduous service 
that might have been required. 

2. While the physical defect above mentioned should have 
been detected on examination for enlistment, if it then 
existed, it is quite possible that it may have been acquired 
since enlistment: and it is evident that, had the men con- 
cerned been required to engage in practice-marches at their 
home stations, said defect would have been discovered, and 
men physically so deficient would not have been sent into 
the field. 

3. It is therefore directed, that, hereafter, whenever prac- 
ticable, practice-marches be held regularly at all posts; said 
marches to be of such frequency, and the details of men 
therefor to be so made, that each member of the command 
will participate in a practice-march at least once in two 
weeks. The initial march shall be of such length as may, 
in the opinion of the commanding officer, be necessary: sub- 
sequent marches to be lengthened until the men become 
well ''hardened." 

4. Incident to these practice-marches, the officers and men 
shall, in the discretion of the commanding officer, be given 
instruction in map-making, map-reading, the service of 
security and information, and in estimating distances. 

5. If the detachment available for this service be not 
equal in size to a small company, such detachment shall 
nevertheless be exercised and instructed as above set forth: 
such officers as may be available being also detailed, and 
being employed to conduct estimating-distance drill and 
other instructions, as outlined in the preceeding pai^agraph. 

6. Practice-marches shall be conducted throughout the 
year, unless, in the opinion of the commanding officer, the 
weather be so hot, cold, or otherwise inclement as to en- 
danger the health of the members of the detachment.

the commanding officer attached to the garrison, then the 
commanding officer shall designate the field officer best 
qualified for such service to act as instructor. If there be 
no field officer attached to the garrison, or none other than 
the commanding officer, then the latter shall himself act as 
instructor, unless there be in the garrison, available for de- 
tail, a captain duly qualified to act as instructor (and of such 
qualification the commanding officer shall first duly assure 
himself), in which event such captain may be detailed as in- 
structor. At every post having more than one commis- 
sioned line officer carried on its strength and available for 
duty, the instruction herein outlined shall be regularly 
conducted.

structor will assign for reading by the student a 
designated section of a standard military author.

month an essay on the section so assigned. Such 
essay shall be based upon the text, expressed in the 
student's own phraseology, and amplified by. or com- 
pared with, the opinions of other standard authors, 
or the student's own reflections on the subject. 

(c) Essays and problems shall be marked not only 
on the basis of their merit from a military stand- 
point, but account shall also be taken, in arriving at 
such mark, of the neatness, sentence structure, phra- 
seology, and correctness of the result turned in by 
the student. 

(d) Instruction, in the form of recitations, on — 
Field Service Regulations (first six weeks): 
Ordnance and Gunnery (second six weeks);

clude the imparting- of other and additional instruction, 
either theoretical or practical, but only indicates a mini- 
mum oi instruction which shall be completed. 

10. A monthly report of the foregoing instruction shall 
be submitted hereto by the instructor, through the com- 
manding officer, which report shall indicate the mark at- 
tained in each subject, and the average mark for the month.

Service Schools, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas," the problems 
and other publications issued therefrom in connection with 
the School of the Line may be obtained: each officer so ap- 
plying will enclose with such application a Post Office Money 
Order for $2.00; if this amount is inadequate, the applicant 
will be informed of the probably slight additional amount 
required. 

2. In connection with Paragraph 5, Section "a," of the 
order above mentioned, it is intended, and to that end is 
ordered, that the Army Service School problems be employ- 
ed for study and instruction only, and that the problems to 
be assigned, solved and turned in as directed by Paragraph 
4, Section "a," be originals. 

3. It is further directed that the theoretical course pre- 
scribed in General Order No. 60 be known as the "Garrison 
Course,'" and that the instructor therein be designated in 
official communications as the "Instructor, Garrison Course."

shall contain a notation, opposite the name of each officer, 
indicating that he has "Completed Garrison Course, Satis- 
factorily, "or "Completed Garrison Course, Unsatisfactorily,"

not taken," as the facts may require. 

5. An officer who shall have completed the course without 
attaining a general average for the five months of 2.5 or 
more, shall be deemed "Unsatisfactory."

staff-returns of all men who have been surveyed and recom- 
mended for discharge shall be closed and forwarded, as for

No. 72. D. S. MARINE CORPS. 

Washington. December id. 1910. 

1. Qualification attained by an officer, under General Order 
No. 33, Navy Department, 1909, does not expire, but, for the 
purpose of determining the course which an officer shall fire 
during- each season, the provisions of paragraph 345, Pro- 
visional Small Arms Firing- Manual, 1909, C. S. Army, will 
be construed so that an officer who fails to complete the re- 
quired course each year will fall back one grade in classifi- 
cation. Thus, an officer who qualified as a marksman in 
1908 entered the season of 1909 with the assumed qualifica- 
tion of marksman, and should therefore have taken the 
sharpshooter's course: In the event that he qualified as a 
sharpshooter, he should then have taken the expert rifle- 
man's test: Had he failed to qualify as a sharpshooter he 
remained classified as a marksman. Had the officer who 
qualified as a marksman in 1908 failed to take the sharp- 
shooter's course in 1909, he entered the season of 1910 with 
no classification, and should have begun his season's firing 
with the marksman's course. This is done in order that an 
officer who qualified at some time, and has had a lapse of 
one or more years in his firing, and has therefore not kept 
in touch with the various changes in the firing regulations, 
may be required to familiarize himself with such changes. 

2. Care will be taken that the records of officers' firing- 
each year, whether they succeed in qualifying or not. are 
forwarded to these headquarters.

ence to the preparing- and shipping, of the articles specified 
above: 

As soon as practicable after the completion of the 
firing, decap the cartridge cases and throw them 
into water. The cleaning will be much facilitated 
if this is done immediately after firing. Then thor- 
oughly clean the interior of each case with a brush 
wiper or a piece of rag on the end of a wiping stick, 
dry, and pack in empty ammunition boxes. Bando- 
leers and clips will not be packed in the boxes to- 
gether with cartridge, cases. Where bandoleers 
and clips are packed in the same box the clips will

taken that the zinc lining of the packing boxes is 
not injured. The lining and zinc cover should be 
retained in the box when the empty cartridge cases, 
bandoleers and clips are packed therein. Empty 
cartridge cases and clips should be invoiced in all 
cases by weight instead of number. The weights 
of cartridge cases and clips by the thousand are as 
follows:

Special Order. HEADQUARTERS, 

No. 1. U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

Washington, November 16, 1908. 

The attention of the Major General, Commandant, has 
been called to an article in the public press which may or 
may not be true, the said article stating- that marine officers 
would seek legislation providing that marine detachments 
be again placed on board ships. 

The undersigned believes that it is his duty to call atten- 
tion to the fact that such proceedings are in violation of the 
regulations, offensive to military discipline, and contrary 
to the motto of the Corps; for • "Semper Fidelis'' would be 
but a meaningless term if it shone only on the sunny side of 
life or duty.

G. F. ELLIOTT. 
Major- General, Comm a n dan t . 



Special Order HEADQUARTERS, 

No. 4. TJ. s. MARINE CORPS, 

Washington, January 19, 1909. 

1. All officers of the Marine Corps are called upon to sub- 
mit to the Inspector of Target Practice a report, showing- 
the names of enlisted men recommended by them as candi- 
dates for the Marine Corps Rifle Team, which will compete 
in the National Match of 1909; or a statement to the effect 
that they have no names to recommend. 

2. The report will state the names of men recommended 
in order of preference, and officers may recommend as many 
candidates as they wish; but officers should limit their rec- 
ommendations to the highest grade of material, including 
only those men whom they believe to have a reasonable 
chance of winning- a place on the team, or whose aptitude spec- 
ially fits them to receive instruction, and to impart it to others. 

3. Recommendations need not be confined to men now 
serving with the officers who recommend them, but may in- 
clude any men with whom they have previously served. 

4. Officers of, and below the grade of captain, may, if they 
so desire, indicate their desire to become candidates for the 
team. 

5. It is intended to assemble as great a number as practi- 
cable of officers and men as candidates for try out and in- 
struction, early in the spring, with a view of affording in- 
struction to candidates, designed not only to prepare them 
for the matches, but to prepare them for duty as instructors 
and coaches, when distributed to their respective stations. 

6. Recommendations should not be based solely on records 
or standing of men in past practice. The preliminary course 
is designed to instruct and develop the candidates, and the 
general estimate officers have of men's aptitude or fitness 
for the work, is reg-arded as a better guide for probable 
efficiency than can be gotten from past classification, where 
the conditions of firing were not equal. 

7. Generally the type desired are men capable of develop- 
ment. Specifically, they should have evidenced interest in 
target practice; should be men of good habits and records: 
not addicted to the use of intoxicants: not disturbers or pro- 
moters of dissatisfaction: should be tractable men who will 
yield readily to teaching and training: young men are pre- 



ferred to older men. They should be early in their enlist- 
ments, or men who will probably reenlist , V)ecause the train- 
ing- expended upon them should be of future value to the 
Corps. They should possess a fair education, such as will 
enable them to study understandingly any lessons assigned, 
and to keep an intelligent record of their work in score 
books. They should be of industrious temperaments: lazy 
men will find that the requirements of the work will be ex- 
acting, and are liable to become disaffected, and to spread 
that feeling-. Recruits who possess the above qualifications 
should not be disciminated against because thev are recruits. 
8. Accompanying report showing names of men recom- 
mended, in the order recommended, there will be attached 
a separate sheet for each individual recommended, and on 
this sheet should be given complete information which will 
be of assistance to the Inspector of Target Practice in select- 
ing list of candidates. This statement will include name, 
rank, present station (if known), approximate date of enlist- 
ment (if known), approximate age: what interest man has 
shown in target practice: his habits and record: some infor- 
mation as to the degree of education possessed: whether he 
will probably continue in service, after expiration of present 
enlistment, and a brief statement of amount of practice. 
with places, approximate dates (year), qualification, and 
under what officer the practice was held: also a general es- 
timate of character and aptitude. Each individual report 
will be signed by the offiicer making it: then each complete 
report will be forwarded through immediate commanding 
officers, and by them addressed direct to tne Inspector of 
Target Practice, Headquarters, U. S. Marine Corps, after 
such comments as they wish to make are endorsed thereon.

Special Order HEADQUARTERS 

No. 13. U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

Washington, May 11, 1909. 

For the information of the officers of the U. S. Marine 
Corps, the following- letter from the office of the Judge Advo- 
cate General, U. S. Army, is herewith published: 

"WAR DEPARTMENT, 

"Office of the Judge-Advocate General, 

"Washington, 

"April 2, 1909. 
"To— 

"The Adjutant-General. 
"Sir: 

"I have the honor to express the following- opinion on 
the question of the assumption of command of the troops on 
board the U. S. Army Transport 'Kilpatrick'. by an officer 
of the Marine Corps, who was on duty with one of the or- 
ganizations attached for service with the army in Cuba: 

"Major C. De W. Willcox, General Staff Corps, and Cap- 
tains A. T. Marix, Marine Corps, and W. T. Bates, 27th U. 
S. Infantry, were passengers on the U. S. Army Transport 
'Kilpatrick' which sailed from Newport News, August 1 
and arrived at Havana, Cuba, August 5, 1908. No officer 
had been assigned in orders to the command of the troops 
on board the transport. 

"Captain' Marix has submitted a claim for subsistence dur- 
ing the trip, and a question is at once raised by the Auditor 
for the Navy Department as to whether he was in command 
during the time in question. 

"If Captain Marix had not been on board, Captain W. T. 
Bates, 27th Infantry, would have assumed .command in 
obedience to the requirements of paragraph 225, U. S. A. 
Transport Regulations, and paragraph 1, Circular No. 88, 
series of 1908, War Department, as Major C. DeW. Wilcox, 
a general staff officer, had not been assigned as such to com- 
mand, and could not assume command under his commission 
in the artillery. 

"When a line officer becomes a general staff officer, he 
cannot take with him the right to command, as it is incon- 
sistent with the duties and obligations of the new status. 



(2) 

This is true even if he becomes a general staff officer for a 
period of time only, in which case the right to command 
remains in abeyance from the time when the officer passes 
from the status of a line officer to his return to that status 
when the right to command attaches. 

''Captain Marix being a marine officer could not. by virtue 
of seniority in the general case, assume command over offi- 
cers and men of the army. Neither could he in the general 
case under paragraph 225. U. S. A. Transport Regulations, 
assume command of the army troops on board a transport. 
The commander-in-chief of the Army and Navy is the only 
common superior of a marine officer and an army officer. 
He is authorized in Section 1610 of the Revised Statutes to 
assign marines to shore duty, and in Section 1621 of the Re- 
vised Statutes to detach them for service with the army. 

"Ordinarily, the marines are, by Section 1621 of the Re- 
vised Statutes, subject to the laws and regulations estab- 
lished for the navy; but when detached for service with the 
army, they are subject to the 'rules and the articles of war." 
which is that part of the law found in Section 1342 of the 
Revised Statutes. These provisions of the law do not make 
the Marine Corps subject to the regulations established 
for the army. In Section 1620 of the Revised Statutes, 
however. 'The President is authorized to prescribe such 
military regulations for the discipline of the Marine Corps 
as he may deem expedient.' The President detached cer- 
tain organizations of the Marine Corps for shore duty with 
the Army of Cuban Pacification, and by so doing, delegated 
to the Commanding General, Army of Cuban Pacification, 
authority to command them. The enclosed papers do not 
show that the regulations published for the guidance of the 
army, were made applicable to those organizations of ma- 
rines. The commanding general had authority over them, 
and would have ordered that they would be governed by 
the transport regulations equally with the army when appli- 
cable, but nothing in these papers indicates that he issued 
such an order. The commanding general could have as- 
signed Captain Marix to command troops on board the 
transport if he were the senior, or he could have directed 
that Captain Marix should be subject on the transport to the 
transport regulations, as though he were an army officer, 
but nothing in these papers indicates that he issued such 
an order. 



(3) 

'"Thus, there is nothing- in these papers to indicate that 
eligibility to command officers or enlisted men of the army 
had been conferred on Captain Marix, from the power of 
command which had been delegated by the President to 
the Commanding- General, Army of Cuban Pacification. 
Without a deleg-ation of such power which could be traced 
through the Commanding General, Army of Cuban Pacifi- 
cation, to the President, Captain Marix was without au- 
thority to assume command over troops on that transport, 
unless the 122d Article of War should apply to his case. 

" 'If, upon marches, guards, or in quarters, different 
corps of the Army happen to join or do duty togeth- 
er, the officer highest in rank of the line of the 
Army, Marine Corps, or militia, by commission, 
there on duty or in quarters, shall command the 
whole, and give orders for what is needful to the 
service, unless otherwise specially directed by the 
President, according to the nature of the case.' 
(122d Article of War.) 
'"This article contemplates a contingency where officers 
of different corps of the army meet together, with no officer 
among them who is a common superior. In the absence of 
some express provision conferring the power, no officer of a 
corps would have the right, in such a contingency, to com- 
mand any troops other than his own. To meet this difficulty, 
the article provides that in such an event the officer high- 
est in rank of his corps and of all the corps, shall command 
the whole. If there be a general officer present, who does 
not belong to any particular corps, the case contemplated 
by the article does not exist: as he would take command by 
authority of the general rule which assigns command to the 
officer highest in rank. The article, however, is broad 
enough to include the contingency of the joining or doing- 
duty together, of corps of the Army, Marine Corps, or 
militia. And in that contingency it provides that the officer 
of the line highest in rank of his corps and of all the 
corps shall command the whole. 

'•The following transposition of the article does no vio- 
lence to its meaning in this respect, but brings out a little 
more clearly the fact that, as a prerequisite to command un- 
der the 122nd Article of War the officer must be on duty in 
command of one of the corps which happen to join or do 
duty together. 

'If different corps of the Army, Marine Corps, or 
militia join or do duty together upon marches, guards. 



(4) 

or in quarters, the officer highest in rank by the com- 
mission of the line of the Army, Marine Corps or 
militia, which is there on duty on marches, guards, 
or in quarters, shall command the whole and give 
orders for what is needed in the service, unless 
otherwise specially directed by the President, ac- 
cording to the nature of the case.' 

"The contingency contemplated by the 122d Article of 
War as regards the Marine Corps did not happen on this 
transport, as no corps or organization of the Marine Corps 
was there present. Captain Marix was not there on duty 
with any organization of marines. He had availed himself 
of leave of absence in the United States and was returning 
to duty with his organization in Cuba, and was not in the 
exercise of command which could, by the operation of that 
article, be extended over the whole, but was the recipient 
of the privilege of having the date of the ending of his 
leave fixed at the sailing date. He was merely a military 
passenger, whose status, i. e., detached service for the pur- 
pose of increasing the length of his leave on shore in the 
United States, was not such a status of duty as could cause 
the obligation in the 122d Article of War to attach to him. 
"I am therefore of the opinion that on the showing made 
in these papers, Captain A. T. Marix, Marine Corps, was 
without authority to assume command of the troops on 
board the transport Kilpatrick on the trip in question. 
"Very Respectfully, 
"Geo. B. Davis, 

"Judge- Advocate General. 
"War Department.

No. 18. U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

Washington, September IS, 1909. 

It is directed that at shore stations the oldest ammunition 
on hand be used in preliminary practice and collective fire, 
and, if found to be fairly accurate, in the record practice at 
the shorter ranges. If such oldest ammunition shall be 
found sufficiently accurate, it shall be used in record prac- 
tice at the longer ranges: otherwise, ammunition of more 
recent manufacture, if available, will be used for record 
firing at the longer ranges.

No. 19. U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

Washnigton, September 17, 1909. 

1. The accompanying table exhibits the result of the Ma- 
rine Corps Rifle Competition, held at Sea Girt, N. J., June 
26, 1909. 

2. Appropriate badges will be issued to the competitors 
named, in accordance with paragraph 275, Small Arms Fir- 
ing regulations, U. S. Army, 1908. 

3. The Small Arms Firing Regulations, U. S. Army, 1908, 
provide that the Army Rifle Team (to which the Marine 
Corps Rifle Team corresponds), shall be composed of enlisted 
men. These regulations, however, permit commissioned 
officers to fire with the enlisted men, and provide that "'any 
commissioned competitor making a score equal to or greater 
than that of any enlisted member of the team will receive 
a medal like that awarded to such member." In the follow- 
ing table the prize winning officer is given the same order 
as that given to the enlisted competitor whose score is 
equalled or exceeded, the fact that the order is that of a 
commissioned competitor being indicated by the letter '"a" 
accompanying the numeral representing the order.

Circular HEADQUARTERS 

^ ^ U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

WASHINGTON; June 25, 1910. 

1 The increasing' number of applications received at these 
headquarters through other than official channels ^V^t 
^discharges, promotions, transfers, furloughs, details for 
splciafdatv. and other special privileges for enlisted men, 
renders it necessary to call the attention of commanding 
officers of marines ashore to this reprehensible practice. 

2 Anv enlisted man who, without seeking the direction 
or advice of his commanding officer, endeavors to bring out- 
side influence to bear in order to advance ^Personal 
interests is guilty not only of a total disregard of military 
discipline, but of an actual infraction of regulations It is 
therefore the desire and the intent of the Commandant of 
the Corns that the practice in question be repressed i ana, 
with this end in view, the Commandant will hereafter, in 
everv instance, refer to commanding officers any communica- 
tions of the nature mentioned which concern enlisted men 
attached to the posts under their command, in order that 
commanding officers may report whether or not the request, 
contained therein have been presented to them, and, it so, 
what action they have seen fit to take m each case. 

3. Requests for the discharge of enlisted men are based on 
a variety of reasons, but. except in a very few eases, they 
are unaccompanied by anything in corroboration of the 
writers' statements; and it therefore becomes necessary 
to refer them to the commanding officers of the men con- 
cerned for comment and recommendation.- 

1 In view of the foregoing, it is directed that, hereafter, 
when such a communication is referred to a commanding 
officer, or when an enlisted man makes formal application for 
discharge (bv purchase or otherwise), the commanding officer 
make careful inquiry into the case., by personal interroga- 
tion and bv such other proper means as may suggest them- 
selves- and. having satisfied himself that the case is one 
which may properly be submitted to these headquarters, the 
commanding officer will require the man to submit with his 
formal application the affidavits of responsible and_ disin- 
terested persons who have actual knowledge of the circum- 
stances. These affidavits will be forwarded with tne appli- 
cation and with an expression of the commanding officer's 
opinion as to the merits of the case. 

5 In general, the Commandant of the Corps does not ap- 
prove of the discharge of enlisted- men prior to the expira- 
tion of their enlistments, except when such action would 
ooerate to relieve conditions of destitution or hardship; and 
in such cases it is of the greatest importance that the Com- 
mandant be informed as to whether or not the man concern- 
ed has. during his enlistment,. contributed to the support of 
his family, and, if so, to what extent. 

6. In this connection, attention is called to Article 1420, 
U. S. Navv Regulations, 1909. 

G. F. ELLIOTT. 
Major-General, Commandant. 



CIRCULAR HEADQUARTERS 

No. 3. (Confidential) U. S. MARINE CORPS. 

Washington, July 2, 1910. 

1. The corps is at present about 400 men short of the num- 
ber authorized by law, 9521. This shortage is not unusual 
at this season of the year; and the reason generally ascribed 
for the annual falling-off is the desertion of men who enlist 
with the intention of remaining in the service through the 
winter months only. The reason just indicated is doubtless 
the real one, in numerous cases: yet it is believed that the 
present desertions are due, in part, to other causes; and in 
an effort to remedy this condition, we must start at the be- 
ginning—the enlistment. If the recruiting officer does his 
work perfectly, desertions chargeable to misinformation at 
the time of enlistment will be prevented and much good ac- 
complished. During the months of May and June, 1910, re- 
spectively, there were:— 

302 412 enlistments. 
12 13 joined from desertion. 

314 425 total. 

204 118 discharges (expiration of enlistment). 

~37 155 discharges (other causes). 

157 176 desertions. 

398 449 loss. 

54 24 net loss. 

2. Recently several cases have developed where men have 
claimed that, upon enlistment, they were encouraged to be- 
lieve that they thereby bettered their chances of obtaining 
commissions in the corps, or that, having stated their pre- 
vious occupations as stenographer, clerk, etc., they were 
impressed with the idea that they would soon be assigned 
to duty allowing them extra compensation. Applicants 
must not be given to understand that they thus improve 
their chances of obtaining commissions: and the matter of 
extra-duty pay must only be mentioned with the greatest 
caution. 

3. It is believed that, to a very great extent, the desertion 
of recruits is due to non-realization, after enlistment, of the 
conditions as represented at the recruiting office. To des- 
cribe the service to an applicant by dwelling upon its un- 
pleasant features only would be prejudicial to the interests 
of the government; yet to represent the service in its most 
favorable light only is not fair to the recruit, while it works 



(2) 

great injury to the corps, causing' unnecessary expense in 
the enlistment of men who desert because of dissatisfaction, 
and rendering recruiting- more difficult, through the return 
of such deserters to their homes, where they naturally in- 
jure the corps and the naval and military service in general 
by reciting- their dissatisfaction and alleged grievances to 
their friends and acquaintances. All members of recruit- 
ing- parties should therefore be instructed to represent to 
applicants for enlistment the actual facts only, describing 
clearly and honestly all features of the service — the nature 
of the duty, — sea, shore, and foreign, — its pleasant and un- 
pleasant features; pay, allowances, benefits, etc.; discipline, 
and the punishments inflicted for infractions thereof , includ- 
ing, particularly, absence without leave and desertion: dis- 
charges, the several forms, their significance, etc. 

4. In addition to such physical examination as may be 
given an applicant by the recruiting officer, the former 
should, as above stated, be carefully instructed by the re- 
cruiting officer as to the details and duties of service-life, 
explaining that, in barracks or in the field, enlisted men 
are often called upon to perform every duty incident to the 
care and preservation of barracks or camps: in other words, 
that every garrison constitutes a separate community, large- 
ly independent of the outside world, and, that, therefore, 
the duty incident to the maintenance of a barracks or a 
camp devolves upon the men composing it. It is not believ- 
ed that sufficient knowledge of this nature can be imparted 
in less than one-half or three-fourths of an hour: and this 
must be done either personally by the recruiting- officer or 
by a competent enlisted man in his presence and under his 
direct observation. 

5. Great care should be exercised in relation to the en- 
listment of minors, proof of age being required whenever 
an applicant appears younger than he represents himself to 
be. In this connection, it may be noted that, on several 
occasions, enlisted men have stated that they were advised, 
by members of recruiting parties, to misrepresent their age, 
in order that they might be considered eligible for enlistment. 

6. Annoyance and unnecessary expense have been caused, 
in some cases, by the unsatisfactory work of civilian medical 
examiners employed on recruiting duty; and, to a great ex- 
tent, this condition can be remedied by recruiting officers' 
giving aid and advice to such examiners, and by personally ex- 
amining recruits passed by inexperienced examiners. 






(3) 

7. Recruiting duty is one of the most important assign- 
ments that can be given an officer. His duty is the first — 
the procuring of good men. If this is properly done, other 
officers can easily attend to the men's future, and build up 
and maintain a creditable service. The duties of a recruit- 
ing officer do not end when he has opened an office, procur- 
ed office equipment and assistants, inserted a "want ad" in 
several papers, and sworn in such men as may have entered 
his office and expressed a desire to enlist. Such an officer 
should be energetic and resourceful. He has a field of his 
own, and, to a certain extent, is independent. He should 
study the industrial conditions of his district, with a view to 
establishing substations at proper places and at proper 
times. 

8. Enlisted men should not be detailed in charge of sub- 
stations until they have demonstrated, at the headquarters 
office, their efficiency. Men should be required to deport 
themselves creditably, and be of neat appearance, at all 
times. This may not secure recruits, but it redounds to the 
credit of the corps, which is an even greater advantage. 

9. The best advertising is within the reach of all recruit- 
ing officers at practically no cost. The service of the Marine 
Corps offers much to men of good character, properly en- 
listed; and the affairs of the Navy and Marine Corps are of 
constant interest to the public. Therefore, if a resourceful 
recruiting officer, from time to time, writes articles illustrat- 
ing service-life and experiences, and furnishes photographs 
when practicable, he will find that prominent papers will 
often be glad to have the necessary cuts made, and will pub- 
lish the best of all advertisements free of charge. This is 
particularly true of Sunday editions of the newspapers of 
the larger cities. Papers published in the rural districts 
desire, rather, personals and information concerning men of 
the neighborhoods who have previously enlisted. Ttems 
setting forth, for instance, that John Smith, who enlisted 
two years ago, as a private, and who is now a corporal, has 
served in Nicaragua and Panama, and on board the Arizona 
and the New Mexico, and has cruised around the world, 
will be gladly published and will bring desirable results. 
Anecdotes related in their own language, by enlisted men 
of the recruiting district, often produce desirable results: 
and proper action and recognition by the recruiting officer 
will frequently bring forth valuable aid from this source. 



(4) 

10. Above all, good officers must be assigned to recruiting 
duty, and must be furnished with the best of enlisted men 
as assistants. They must keep these men up to the mark, 
and ask for their transfer and relief if their usefulness or 
their attention to duty relaxes. 

11. Not all of our recruiting officers work their districts 
to the best advantage. It is therefore hoped that a careful 
consideration of the above, and a more thorough realization 
of the importance of their duties on the part of such officers, 
will result not only in an improvement of our recruiting 
service, but in so bringing our corps before the public that 
it will be its own argument for honest efficiency, whether 
in the recruiting district, the barracks, at sea, or in the 
field. 

12. In conclusion: The preceding observations and com- 
ments are by no means to be construed as a sweeping con- 
demnation of all officers and men on recruiting duty, but 
rather as a general review of the recruiting service, based 
upon important points which, from time to time, have been 
brought, officially and unofficially, to the attention of this 
office, and which are confidentially communicated to the 
officers of the corps, for their information and guidance.

Circular HEADQUARTERS 

No. 6. U. S. MARINE CORPS. 

Washington, January 6, 1911. 

The following- is published for the information of the 
service; — 
"Office of the Secretary. 

"Department of the Navy, 
"Washington, 

"December 31, 1910. 

"From Acting Secretary of the Navy. 
"To Headquarters U. S. Marine Corps. 

"SUBJECT: Place of enlistment of men examined 
and accepted at Denver, Colorado, but 
sworn in at Salt Lake City, Utah. 

"The Department has considered the question presented 
by the Marine recruiting- officer, District of Utah, in his 
letter of November 23, 1910, forwarded to the Department 
by endorsement of Colonel William P. Biddle. U. S. Marine 
Corps, dated December 12, 1910. 

"As shown by the correspondence in this case, a doubt 
has arisen in regard to the proper entry, as to the place of 
enlistment, which should be made on the enlistment papers 
of certain men, who 'were examined and accepted at Denver, 
Colo., and were ordered to stop over at Salt Lake City, 
Utah, en route to Mare Island, Calif., for the purpose of 
being sworn in only. ' 

"This question is of importance, among- other things, in 
determining- the place to which these men will be entitled 
to travel allowance upon discharge. 

••The act of March 2, 1901 (31 Stat., 902), which is appli- 
cable to the Marine Corps, contains the following- provision: 

" 'That hereafter * * * an enlisted man when 
discharged from the service, except by way of pun- 
ishment for an offense, shall receive four cents per 
mile from the place of his discharg-e to the place of 
enlistment^ enrollment, or muster into the service.' 

"'The words 'enlist' and 'enlistment,' in the law, as in 
common usage, may signify either the complete fact of en- 
tering- into the military service, or the first step taken by the 
recruit towards that end.' (Tyler v. Pomeroy et a/., 8 Allen, 
480: Coe y. U. S., 44 C. Cls. 419.) That the word 'enlistment' 
as used in the provision above quoted from the act of March 
2, 1901, was intended to have the broader meaning- is made 
plain by the use of the word 'enrollment' in the same con- 
nection. 'The enrollment of a person for service in the 
volunteer army is only a proposal to enter such service — a 



(2) 

declaration of his readiness to do so. He may or he may not 
carry this out and enter the service by musterrin. He may 
refuse to carry it out, and he does not thereby become a de- 
serter. ' (Opinion of Judge Advocate General of the Army, 
October 6, 1900: War Dept. Cir., March 23, 1901.) 

' ; By the provisions of Section 1609 of the Revised Statutes 
and Section 25 of the Navy personnel act of March 3, 1899, 
enlisted men of the Navy and Marine Corps are required to 
take the same oath which is provided by law for enlisted 
men of the Army. The oath of allegiance prescribed for 
enlisted men of the Army is contained in article 2 of the 
Articles of War (Section 1342. R. S.), which provides that 
said oath is to be taken 'by every enlisted man at the time 
of, or within six days after, his enlistment.- It will thus be 
seen that Congress has used the word 'enlistment' in this 
article as having reference to an act separate and distinct 
from the taking of the prescribed oath of allegiance. 

•'In view of the foregoing, the Department decides that 
the men in question were enlisted at Denver, Colorado, 
within the meaning of the law allowing mileage on dis- 
charge. (5 Comp. Dec. 116). This is in accordance with a 
decision rendered by the Department on March 30, 1905 (file 
1096- J AG), concerning dates of enlistment of certain men in 
the Navy. The decision in question read in part as follows: 

" 'It appears that Trampp signed the shipping ar- 
ticles on board the 'Rainbow' December 27. 1901. 
but did not take the oath of allegiance until the 
next day. 

'• 'While the personnel act of March 3, 1899. sec- 
tion 25, requires that an oath of allegiance shall be 
administered to enlisted men of the Navy, there ap- 
pears to be no provision of law that postpones the 
taking effect of an enlistment until such oath is 
taken. Trampp should be taken up for pay and 
rations from the date he signed the shipping arti- 
cles, December 27, which is regarded as the date of 
his enlistment.' 

"The foregoing is also in full accord with the decisions 
of the Supreme Court in the cases of U. S. v. Flanders (112 
U. S. 88) and U. S. v. Eaton (169 U. S. 331) and decisions of 
the Comptroller of the Treasury based thereon (4 Comp. 
Dec. 496; 8 id. 199), with reference to the oath of office and 
execution of bond required of public officers.

The following- decisions are published lor the information 
of the service: — 

"TREASURY DEPARTMENT, 
"Office of Comptroller of Treasury 
"March 4, 1911. 

"The Auditor for the Navy Department submitted for 
approval, disapproval or modification his decision, dated the 
25th ultimo, making- an original construction of a statute as 
follows: 

•• "Glen W. Garrison, late private, U. SI M. C, 
has made claim to this office for travel pay from Salt 
Lake City, Utah, to Denver, Col., on his discharge 
January 2;{, 1911. at Mare Island, Cal. 
" 'The facts are as follows: 

" ; On November 21, 1910 i; the claimant presented 
himself for enlistment in the United States Marine 
Corps at Denver, Col., and expressed his intention 
to enlist in the following -declaration: 

" ' "I, Glen Willis Garrison, desiring to enlist in 
the Cnited States Marine Corps for the term of four 
years, do declare that I have neither wife nor child, 
and that there is no one dependent upon me for sup- 
port: that I am of the legal age to enlist,,and believe 
myself to be physically qualified to perform the duties 
of an able bodied marine; and I further declare that 
I am of good habits and character in all respects and 
have never deserted from the United States service 
(Army, Navy,. Marine Corps or Revenue Cutter 
Service) or have been discharg-ed therefrom or from 
any other ^service, civil or military on account of 
disability, or through sentence of either civil or 
military court, nor discharged from any service, civil 
or military, except with good character, and for the 
reasons given by me to the recruiting officer; and 
that I am a native born citizen of the United States.' 
It further appears that his medical examination 
was had at Denver, Col. Subsequent to his declara- 
tion of intention to enlist and medical examination, 
and while enroute from Denver, Col., to Mare Is- 
land, Cal., Navy Yard, claimant with Other recruits 
was ordered to stop over at Salt Lake City, Utah, for 
the purpose of being sworn in only. 

" 'The act of March 2, 1901 (31 Stat,, 902) provides 
as follows: 

is in * * * That hereafter * * * an enlisted 
man when discharged from the service except by 
way of punishment for an offense, shall receive four 
cents per mile from place of discharge to place of 
enlistment, enrollment, or muster into the service.'

" 'In Winthrop's Digest of Opinions of Judge Ad- 
vocates General of the Army it was said with refer- 
ence to Second Article of War (1342 R. S.) at page 19: 

" ' ''The taking- of the oath prescribed by this 
article is not an essential to the validity of an enlist- 
ment. It is, however, an almost invariable part of 
a regular formal enlistment, and, in the absence of 
any provision in our law defining in what an enlist- 
ment shall consist, it is important that it should not 
be omitted, for the reason that the oath as taken 
and subscribed, by the party constitutes the regular, 
and in some cases, the only, legal written evidence 
that the personal act of enlisting has been completed 
by him." " 'At page 384 ib. it was said: 

" ' "Our law not defining, nor designating what 
proceeding or proceedings shall or may constitute 
an enlistment, it may be said in general that any 
act or acts which indicate an undertaking on the 
part of a person legally competent to do so, to render 
military service to the United States for the term 
required by the existing law, and an acceptance of 
such service on the part of the government may or- 
dinarily be regarded as legal evidence of a contract 
of enlistment between the parties, and as equivalent 
to a formal written agreement where no such agree- 
ment has been had.*' 

"'In Coe v. U. S., 44 Ct. Cls. decision at page 
427, Mr. Justice Barney in speaking for the Court 
said: 

" ' "In order to become a soldier in the United 
States Army i. e. in order to become a fully enlisted 
man, the party must first enlist by signing the pre- 
scribed application, and he must then be accepted 
and sworn into the service by the proper officer, who 
is then said to have enlisted the soldier. The sign- 
ing of the application provided by the Articles of 
War, supra, is the only act in the matter of enlist- 
ment which can be performed by the soldier without 
the cooperation and assistance of the recruiting 
officer. 

" ' "We believe that when a soldier presents him- 
self for service in the Army, signs the prescribed 
application and submits to and successfully passes a 
medical examination he has reenlisted within the 
meaning of Section 1284 R. S. supra.'''' (See also 16 
Comp. Dec, 359.) 

'"Claimant presented himself for enlistment at 
Denver, Col., November 21, 1910, and signed his 
declaration of intention to enlist, was examined, 
and in short performed all acts within his power to 
become an enlisted man of the United States Marine 
Corps. He submitted to military authority and was 
by that authority transferred to a place other than 
the original place of entry into the military service 
within the meaning of the Act of March 2, 1901, 
supra, to wit, Salt Lake City, Utah, where he took 



(3) 

the oath of allegiance as prescribed by the Second 
Article of War (Sec. 1342 R. S.) and was accepted 
and enlisted into the United States Marine Corps. 
"'I am of opinion and so decide that the taking 
of the oath at Salt Lake City, Utah, more than five 
hundred miles from the place of his enlistment can 
not defeat the true intent of the law, and that the 
claimant is entitled to be paid travel pay on his 
discharge to Denver, Col., the place of his enlist- 
ment." ' 

"The decision by the Auditor that Private Garrison's en- 
listment in the Marine Corps became legally effective at 
Denver. Col., and that under and subject to the law govern- 
ing- the payment of travel allowance he was entitled on dis- 
charge to travel allowance to such place is approved. The 
records show that Private Garrison was honorably dis- 
charged the service with character good.

''The Honorable 

"The Secretary of the Navy. 
"Sir: 

"I have received your communication of the 4th instant: 

" ' * * * requesting decision of the question 
presented in the within papers as to the right of 
Peter Turner Hall, whose enlistment record is en- 
closed herewith, to receive pay for the period from 
December 29, 1910, the date first signature was af- 
fixed by him to the enclosed enlistment paper, at 
Denver, Colorado, to December 31, 1910, date of his 
second signature thereto, at Salt Lake City, Utah. 

"' 'A letter from the officer in charge of the marine 
recruiting district of Utah, dated November 23, 
1910, in consequence of which this question has 
arisen, is enclosed, together with copy of this De- 
partment's letter of December 31, 1910, holding that 
men "examined and accepted at Denver, Colorado, 
but sworn in at Salt Lake City, Utah," should be 
treated as having enlisted at Denver, Colo., within 
the meaning of the Act of March 2, 1901 (31 Stat., 
902), authorizing payment of mileage on discharge. 

" "There appears to be no doubt that Hall would 
be entitled on discharge to be furnished mileage to 
Denver, Colorado. To hold otherwise would be to 
defeat the obvious purpose of Congress that enlisted 
men of the Army and Marine Corps should on dis- 
charge be returned, at Government expense, to the 
place from which they were removed by the mill- 



(-1) 

tary authorities after making* application for enlist- 
ment. The question is, whether this man should be 
treated as having' enlisted at Denver, Colo., for all 
purposes. Tt would seem that when Hall regularly 
perfected his enlistment, without unnecessary de- 
lay, at Salt Lake City, Utah, it properly related 
hack to the time when lie presented himself for 
service in the Marine Corps, signed the prescribed 
application, and submitted to and passed a medical 
examination at Denver, Colo. (Coe vs. U. S., 44 C. 
Cls.. 419).' 
"It appears from the papers submitted that Peter Turner 
Hall presented himself for enlistment in the IT. S. Marine 
Corps at Denver, Colo.. December 29, 1910, where he signed 
the prescribed application and successfully passed a medical 
examination; also that he took the oath of allegiance pre- 
scribed by the 2nd article of war (sec. 1342, R. S.) December 
31, 1910. at Salt Lake City, Utah, to which place he pro- 
ceeded under orders of the proper marine corps authorities. 
"Upon the facts thus appearing- I am of opinion that Pri- 
vate Hall's enlistment on his taking the oath of allegiance 
became complete and was legally effective December 29, 
1910, and that he is entitled to pay from and including that 
date. (See Coe v. United States, 44 Ct. Cls., 419; Decision of 
this office of March 4, 1911, copy herewith.)

KARINB COR?S ORDERS 



Marine Corps Orders. HEADQUARTERS 

No. 1. a; S. MARINE CORPS. 

Washington. April 20, 1911. 

1. On July 1st next, there will be inaugurated at all posts 
of the Marine Corps now rationed by the contract system, a 
system of rationing- which contemplates the purchase of the 
various components of the ration by items and the issue of 
such components directly to troops. The following instruc- 
tions are published for the information and guidance of offi- 
cers of the Marine Corps who are required to provide and 
issue ration to enlisted men, and such instructions will be- 
come effective upon the inauguration of the component 
ration system on July 1st, next. 

2. The method to be followed involves placing the ration 
account of an organization or command on the basis of dol- 
lars and cents. The organization or command will be credit- 
ed with the value of the number of rations due it, computed 
at the unit value of the ration, and the organization or com- 
mand may draw against such credit in components of the 
ration regardless of the quantity of the articles drawn or 
the specific articles, up to the full amount of its credit. 

3. An account of all articles of the ration received from 
contractors will be kept in a book set apart for this special 
purpose. On the last day of the month, all articles purchas- 
ed during the month, from whatever source, will be taken 
up on the "Abstract of Purchases,"' Form N. M. C. 579, and 
the totals from this abstract will be carried to the "Return 
of Subsistence Stores." the abstract becoming the voucher 
to the return. The "Abstract of Purchases'' will be sup- 
ported by duplicates of the contractor's bills. Articles that 
may be received on invoice will be taken up on the return, 
on the invoices as vouchers. 

4. An account of issues of authorized articles of subsis- 
tence stores will be kept in a book devoted exclusively to 
such purpose. The account of issues of articles of provisions 
that may be obtained from post-funds will not be confused 
in any way with the account of articles of the ration 
issued: and the account of issues of such articles as may be 
obtained from post funds will be kept entirely separate from 
the account of regular issues of ration articles chargeable 
to the ration and savings account. The Account of ration 
articles issued will be summed up on the last day of the 
month and the totals of each of the various components and 
substitutive articles issued will be carried to the form 
"Ration Strength and Abstract of Articles of the Ration 
Issued."' FormN. M. C. 563. At all posts in the United 
States, and at posts outside of the United States where gen- 
eral messes are maintained, the ration will be issued to the 
entire command as a unit, only one ration and savings account 
will be kept, and the entire transaction of rationing the 
command will be conducted as for a single unit. At posts 
where separate company messes are maintained, a separate 
ration account will be kept with each organization, the 
account to be kept in the manner above set forth. Like- 
wise, a separate "Ration Strength and Abstract of Articles 
of the Ration Issued" will be prepared for each of the 
several organizations to which rations are issued, at posts 
where company messes are maintained. 



5. The aggregate value of all articles of the ration issued 
to a command as a unit, or to a company mess, as the case 
may he, will be determined by computing the quantity of 
the various articles of the ration issued at the current prices 
and such aggregate will be entered on the form "'Statement 
of Ration Strength and Abstract of Articles of the Ration 
Issue,*' Form N. M. C. 563, in the space provided therefor. 

6. The "Statement of Ration Strength and Abstract of 
Articles of the Ration Issued," FormN. M. C. 563, will con- 
stitute the voucher for dropping the articles issued from the 
return of subsistence stores. The vouchers supporting issues 
of articles of the ration will be entered directly on the re- 
turn, on separate lines, provided there is space therefor. In 
case the number of such vouchers should exceed the number 
of lines available, as may be the case at posts where com- 
pany messes are maintained, vouchers, "'Ration Strength 
and Abstract of Articles of the Ration Issued," will be con- 
solidated on Form N. M. C. 578, and the totals entered on 
the return on a single line. 

7. At posts where general messes are maintained, a 
"Ration Check.*' Form N. M. C. 565, will be prepared for 
each day. Issues need not necessarily be made on Sunday, 
although the ration check for Sunday should show the total 
rations allowed for that day. At posts where general messes 
are maintained, the reverse of Form N. M. C. 563, will be 
completed and made to show the total rations due the com- 
mand. At posts where general messes are not maintained, 
the reverse of Form N. M. C. 563 will not be used. Nor will 
•'Ration Checks," Form N. M. C. 565, be used at such posts. 
The form "Ration Return," N. M. C. 582, is provided for use 
at posts where separate company messes are maintained; 
and such "'Ration Returns" will afford the necessary data to 
support the entries showing rations due the companies or 
organizations on the ration and savings account, Form N. M. 
C. 587. 

8. At posts where separate company messes are maintain- 
ed, and where issues of rations are made for stated 
periods, the ration periods should not exceed four (4) per 
month, owing to the limitations of Form N. M. C. 587. As 
will be observed, there are spaces on this form for the dif- 
ferent organizations and columns for as many as four ration 
periods. It will ordinarily be found good practice to require 
organizations maintaining separate messes to submit three 
ration returns per month. 

9. In no case will an organization or general mess be al- 
lowed to draw against its ration and savings account articles 
of the ration in excess of the total credit of the organiza- 
tion as per the ration and savings account. When an organ- 
ization is found to have drawn up to the limit of its credit 
on the ration and savings account, any additional articles 
required by the organization will be sold to it for cash and 
accounted for on the "Abstract of Subsistence Stores Sold.*' 
Form N. M. C. 580. 

The Ration and Savings Account. 

10. The "'Ration and Savings Account 1 ' is the money state- 
ment of the ration account of the organization. For the 
purpose of making up the "Ration and Savings Account*' 
at posts where general messes are maintained, the entire 



(3) 

month will be considered as one ration period, and the en- 
tire command as one organization. The ration period will 
extend from the first to the last day of the month, and the 
number of rations due will be the rations due as shown on 
the "Statement of Ration Strength and Abstract of Articles 
of the Ration Issued," Form N. M. C. 563. The actual cost 
of the ration will be arrived at by figuring on the basis of 
one hundred (100) rations at the contract price of the stipu- 
lated components as set forth on the back of "Ration and 
Savings Account" form. Issues are not restricted to the 
components stipulated for use in figuring the cost of the 
ration. Any authorized articles of the ration provided for 
in the contracts may be issued as required, at the contract 
price. The cost of the ration as derived is merely to be 
used in arriving at the amount of the credit of the organi- 
zation on account of rations. The column "Total Amount," 
on the ration and savings account form, represents the total 
credit of the command for the month on account of rations, 
and is obtained by multiplying the cost of one ration at the 
post, as determined in accordance with the foregoing in- 
structions, by the total number of rations due. The value 
of stores issued as shown on "Statement of Ration Strength 
and Abstract of Articles of the Ration Issued," will be en- 
tered in the column ' 'value of stores issued. ' ' The difference 
between the total amount of credit due the organization on 
account of rations and the value of stores issued represents 
the savings due the organization; and such amount will be 
paid to the organization on the ration and savings account 
voucher by the disbursing assistant quartermaster whose 
duty it is to pay the voucher. The ration and savings ac- 
count voucher will be completed and forwarded, as soon as 
possible after the last day of the month, to the disbursing 
officer who is required to make payment thereon. The 
ration and savings account voucher will be supported by 
copies of the statement of "Ration Strength and Abstract 
of Articles of the Ration Issued," and will be in duplicate. 

11. At posts where separate company messes are main- 
tained, the value of rations due the separate organizations 
for the different ration periods will be stated in the columns 
provided therefor on the ration and savings account form; 
and the aggregate of such credits for the different periods 
will be stated in the column "Total Amount." In other re- 
spects the form "Ration and Savings Account" will be com- 
pleted as set forth in the preceding paragraph, except that, 
as previously stated, the strength present for rations of the 
different organizations will be supported by the "Ration 
Return," N. M. C. 582, and not by the detailed statement 
of strength for rations required to be set forth on the reverse 
of Form N. M. C. 563. as applied to posts where general 
messes are maintained. The "Ration Returns," Form N. 
M. C. 582, will be retained and filed by subsistence officers. 
The accounts of the different organizations will be carried 
on the ration and savings account form on separate lines. 

Prices. 

12. fa) The prices of subsistence stores for the post will 
be the contract prices of the various articles as per the cur- 
rent contracts for the respective articles. These prices 
will be used in figuring the actual cost of the ration, and 
will be entered on the return of subsistence stores for the 



period. Articles of subsistence stores that may be carried 
forward from the previous month that were purchased under 
previous contracts at prices different from the prevailing 
prices as per contracts for the current month will be taken 
up at current contract prices. In the event that the price of 
any article varies during the month by reason of change of 
contract or other reason, an average price for such article 
will be obtained by dividing the total cost by the quantity 
of the article purchased. 

fbj Owing to the sliding scale and maximum features of 
the contract for subsistence stores obtained at Camp Elliott, 
Panama, prices at that station are liable to fluctuation. 
Conditions at Camp Elliott are in this respect exceptional; 
and at this station the following special instructions will 
govern in the matter of prices. The actual prices charged 
by the contractor for the month will be applied in determin- 
ing the prices of subsistence stores for such month. The 
prices of subsistence stores for each month will therefore be 
the prices charged by the contractor for the articles deliver- 
ed as per his bills rendered on the last of the month. In 
the event of different prices being charged for the same 
article, it will be necessary to derive an average price by 
dividing the total cost of such article by the total quantity. 
In case none of an article should be procured in any month, 
the price of such article will be the price of the article 
that obtained on the last day of the preceding month. The 
prices of subsistence stores will be fixed monthly, in accord- 
ance with the foregoing; and such prices will be applied in 
figuring the actual cost of the ration, in making sales; and 
such prices will be entered on the return of subsistence 
stores for the period. 

fcj The price at which subsistence stores that may be ob- 
tained on invoice from other stations, or other departments 
of the Government, will be sold or issued, is the invoice 
price of the last lot of the same variety of subsistence stores 
received by the officer making the sale or issue, prior to the 
first day of the month in which the sale, issue, or transfer 
is made. 

13. Flour required for baking bread for the command will 
be issued and accounted for on the statement of ''Strength 
and Abstract of Articles of the Ration Issued,'' in like man- 
ner as other components of the ration. Bakery funds and 
bakeries will be managed as heretofore. 

14. The quantities of stores ordered from contractors is 
a matter to be determined by the post-quartermaster, sub- 
ject to the instructions of the commanding officer; but in 
placing orders for stores the convenience of the contractors 
in the matter of quantities to be delivered should be con- 
sidered, in so far as storage space available and the interests 
of the Government will admit. 

15. Payment for supplies will be made monthly; and con- 
tractors should be required to render their bills monthly to 
the post quartermaster. The original of the contractors' 
bills will be appended to the vouchers in favor of the con- 
tractor, and the vouchers forwarded promptly to the dis- 
bursing assistant quartermaster charged with paying the 
account, duly certified, for payment. 

16. All articles of the ration required for the supply of 
troops will be obtained by the post-quartermaster from the 



5 

contractor- and supplied to the organizations, except that, if 
an organization uses, during- the month, more of any article 
of the ration than is authorized by regulations, such excess 
need not necessarily be obtained from the subsistence 
officer; or if any articles connot be provided by the contrac- 
tor, a temporary supply may be purchased by the subsis- 
tence officer elsewhere. 

17. Regarding the allowance of turkey on national holi- 
days, attention is further invited to the following extract 
from General Orders. War Department, which will be ob- 
served in settlement on such occasions: — 

"When a holiday occurs in any ration period and 
the turkey or chicken available for supply costs 
more than the regular meat ration, the proper al- 
lowance will be made by adding to the amount due 
the organization for that period the product of the 
number of men present on the holiday multiplied 
by the excess cost of the chicken or turkey over 
the regular meat ration." 

In computing the cost of the ration for a month in which 
a holiday occurs, the allowance of undrawn turkey is 19 
ounces. (Referring to the quotation used in this paragraph, 
chicken is no longer authorized as a substitutive article of 
the ration, and turkey is authorized on Thanksgiving Day 
and Christmas Day only.) 

18. In figuring the cost of the ration when component or 
substitutive articles of the ration are provided for in the 
contract in different kinds of packages, the price varying 
with the package, the current price of the article in the 
least expensive package will be used in computing the cost 
of the ration. 

19. Soap, candles, and ice that may be issued in accord- 
ance with established allowances will be dropped from the 
returns of the accountable officer, on certificates of the issu- 
ing officer, duly approved by the commanding officer. 

Returns. 

20. Returns for subsistence stores will be rendered month- 
ly. The returns will be made up in accordance with the 
instructions printed on the blanks, and supported by sub- 
sidiary vouchers, all of which will be completed in accord- 
ance with the instructions printed on the forms. Returns 
will be forwarded to the Officer in Charge of the Quarter- 
master's Department within ten (10) days after the expira- 
tion of the month to which the returns pertain. The 
necessary blanks to be used in rendering returns will be 
furnished to the posts by the Quartermaster's Department. 

21. When necessary for any reason to render returns for 
part of a month, the abstract of purchases rendered for the 
first part of the month will not be accompanied by the 
dealers' bills. When returns are rendered for fractional 
parts of a month, the dealers' bills will accompany the ab- 
stract forwarded with the last return; and the aggregates 
of articles taken up on the different abstracts should agree 
with the totals as per dealers' bills. The ration and savings 
account will not be rendered from permanent stations for 
fractional parts of a month under any conditions. 



(6) 

22. The foregoing- instructions will become effective in 
the Philippine Islands as soon as the necessary blanks have 
been provided for use in issuing- and accounting- for the 
rations issued to marines in the Philippine Islands. Upon

"No. 6, U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

Washington. May 9. 1911. 

1. Subject to the provisions of Articles 1445 (3), and 1446, 
Navy Regulations, 1909, commanding officers of marines 
serving at posts and stations beyond the limits of the states 
comprising the Union, and the territories of the United 
States contiguous thereto, are authorized, in cases of orig- 
inal promotions to the grades of first sergeant (temporary 
warrant), sergeant, and corporal, within their commands, 
to issue temporary warrants, within proportions to be pre- 
scribed by the Commandant of the Corps, under which such 
non-commissioned officers will assume the rank, insignia.,, 
and duties, and will be entitled to the pay, of their respect- 
ive grades from date of appointment. When a force is or- 
ganized into a regiment, the power herein conferred shall 
rest in the regimental commander, except that when regi- 
ments are formed into a regularly organized brigade, this 
power shall rest in the brigade commander. 

2. Copies of temporary warrants, when so issued, shall be 
transmitted to these Headquarters with the report of ex- 
amination in each case. Regular warrants will then be 
forwarded by : the Commandant of the Corps, in approved 

•easeSjin confirmation of such original appointments. Tem- 
porary warrants may be revoked by the appointing officer 
at. any time prior to the receipt of the permanent warrant, 
in which case the permanent warrant, if received, shall be 
returned to the Commandant of the Corps. 

3. Where, for any reason, a temporary appointment is not 
approved at these Headquarters, it shall be revoked, upon 
receipt b"f 'notice i of such disapproval from the Commandant 
of the Corps, by the commanding officer under whom the 
man is then serving: and the increase of pay incident to 
the temporary appointment shall cease from the date of 
such revocation. 

4. Vacancies occuring shall not be filled unless there are 
available men who are qualified in every respect to perform 
the duties pertaining to the grade which may be vacant. 
Should such men not be available, the commanding officer 
shall notify the Commandant to that effect. 

5. Commanding officers of marines, both within and with- 
out the United States, and recruiting officers are authorized, 
upon the reenlistment within ten days following the day of 



(2) 

discharge of any marine who was discharged as a non- 
commissioned officer with character "Excellent," to reap- 
point him at once to the grade held by him at date of said 
discharge, subject to the approval of these Headquarters. 
Warrants in such cases shall be appropriately endorsed by 
the appointing- authority and transmitted to the Command- 
ant of the Corps for his approval. Non-commissioned offic- 
ers so appointed will assume the rank, insignia, and duties, 
and will be entitled to the pay of their respective grades, 
from the date of such temporary reappointment. 

6. Non-commissioned officers who have held permanent 
warrants, and who may have been reduced from such status 
for duty on recruiting service, shall, upon their subsequent 
return to the general service (if such return is not on ac- 
count of misconduct), be reappointed by the recruiting' 
officer to the grades in which they originally held perma- 
nent warrants. In such cases, the warrants shall be ap- 
propriately indorsed and transmitted by the appointing 
authority, to these Headquarters, where the same proced- 
ure will follow as is above outlined in cases of re-enlisted 
non-commissioned officers. 

7. Original promotions not hereinbefore provided for will 
be evidenced by regular warrants issued from these Head- 
quarters; and such non-commissioned officers will assume 
the rank, insignia, and duties, and will be entitled, from 
the date of appointment, to the pay, of their respective 
grades as evidenced by the date of the issue of the warrant. 

W. P. BLDDLK, 
Major General Commandant. 



Marine Corps Orders, HEADQUARTERS 

No. 7. U. S. MARINE CORPS. 

Washington. May 11, 1911. 

The provisions of General Order No. 52, Headquarters U. 
S. Marine Corps. April 14, 1910, are so far amended that 
indebtednesses to post-exchanges, incurred after July 1, 1911, 
at all shore stations of the corps, in amounts not in excess 
of properly authorized credits, will, in cases of deserters, be 
checked against their accounts on pay-rolls, and on transfer- 
accounts to the deserters' roll. Post-exchange vouchers, 
for each month next after that stated, will include, imme- 
diately following- accounts thereon as now authorized, under 
the title ' 'Deserters' Accounts." the amount so checked in 
each case of a deserter: and to such vouchers there will be 
attached the original evidence (post-exchange tickets) as 
signed by the enlisted man concerned, corroborating the 
amount so claimed. If such tickets cannot be so filed, a cer- 
tificate showing reasons therefor, by an officer other than 
the post-exchange officer, and further stating that the 
records show that such indebtedness actually exists in each 
case, in the amounts stated, will be attached to the post- 
exchange vouchers.

Marine Corps Orders, HEADQUARTERS 

No. 11. U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

Washington. May 24, 1911. 

1. The following instructions are published for the infor- 
mation and guidance of officers and non-commissioned officers 
of the Marine Corps and others upon whom duties in con- 
nection with the issue and accounting for clothing may de- 
volve. A modified system of issuing and accounting for 
clothing has been approved by this office, and its use 
throughout the Marine Corps is directed. The modified 
system as approved contemplates the use of the following 
new forms. The practice to be observed in the handling 
of the issue of clothing under the modified system is ex- 
plained in connection with the different forms mentioned: 

requisition-slip . 

(a) An enlisted man who requires clothing will enter on 
the requisition-slip the articles required, in time, if possi- 
ble, to have it completed and turned in to the issuing officer 
at least two days prior to issue-day, for examination and 
such revision as may be necessary. The requisition-slip 
displaces the individual clothing requisition and receipt- 
book heretofore used: and the use of this book is no longer 
authorized. 

ISSUE-SLIP. 

(b) The issue-slip will be made out in triplicate, by the 
use of an indelible pencil and carbon paper, at the time the 
issue of clothing is made. A separate issue-slip will be 
made up for each issue of clothing to an individual. The 
original issue-slip will be used as the forwarding voucher. 
The duplicate issue-slip becomes the issuing officer's retained 
voucher, while the triplicate issue-slip is given to the en- 
listed man, at the time the issue is made, to be retained by 
him. First-sergeants or company-commanders may retain 
for safe keeping the triplicate issue-slips pertaining to the 
enlisted men of their companies. The originals and dupli- 
cates of issue-slips covering issues to each individual will 
have the clothing-account number of the individual en- 
tered thereon. The originals and duplicates of issue-slips 
pertaining to each individual will also be numbered in 
series, from 1 up: for example, in case only one issue should 
be made to a man, the slip should be numbered 1; if two 
issues should be made, the second slip should be numbered 
2. etc. These issue-slip numbers are to be of a different 
series from account-numbers and have no connection with 
account-numbers. A new series of numbers for issue-slips 
will be started with the beginning of each quarter or ac- 
counting period. Both originals and duplicates -of issue- 
slips will be signed by the enlisted man who receives the 
clothing: and all three copies will be signed by the witness- 
ing officer. 

CONSOLIDATED STATEMENT OF ISSUE-SLIPS. 

(c) On this form a consolidation of issues to individuals 
will be made from the issue-slips. The account-number of 
each individual to whom issues have been made will be en- 
tered in the colum provided therefor: and the value of the 



(2) 

issue per each slip to such account will be entered in the 
space provided therefor. A record of all issues to individ- 
uals, as supported by the issue-slips, will be stated in the 
space provided therefor. The consolidated statement, sup- 
ported by the original copies of the issue-slips, becomes the 
voucher to support the charges on the clothing-account roll 
on account of clothing issued. The consolidated statement 
of issues will be prepared whenever an officer closes his re- 
turns for any reason. The original, with the original copies 
of issue-slips, will be forwarded to the- officer in charge of 
the quartermaster's department with the clothing-account 
roll, provided the returns have been closed on the last of 
the quarter and the clothing-account roll is being forward- 
ed. In case an officer shall be closing his returns prior to 
the end of the quarter, on account of having been relieved, 
the original of the consolidated statement of issue-slips and 
the original copies of issue-slips will be forwarded to the 
officer in charge of the quartermaster's department forth- 
with, to be retained by the quartermaster's department 
until the clothing-account roll from the post comes in. The 
duplicate of the consolidated statement of issue-slips, with 
the retained requisition and issue-slips, will, in such a case, 
be prepared and left at the post as the basis for charging 
amounts of issues of clothing on the clothing-acconnt roll 
for the period involved. 

CHECK-SHEET. 

(d) At the conclusion of the day's issue, the articles is- 
sued will be checked from the issue-slips to the check-sheet. 
One page of the check-sheet will be devoted to each day 
that clothing is issued. The totals of the articles issued 
will be computed and entered on the check-sheet in the 
space provided therefor. The aggregates of values of the 
various articles issued for the day will also be computed 
and entered on the check-sheet in the proper" column. 
Totals of articles of previous issues will be brought forward; 
and the aggregate of the articles issued to date, in the ac- 
counting period, will be stated in the column provided. 
The check-sheets will be kept posted up so that it can be 
determined immediately at any time what quantities of each 
of the various articles of clothing the issuing officer may 
have issued in the current accounting period. Check-sheets 
will be kept in prong-files, or loose leaf binders, which will 
be provided for the purpose. 

ABSTRACT OF ISSUES. 

(e) Whenever it becomes necessary for an officer to close 
his returns, either because of being relieved or because of 
end of quarter, the totals of articles of clothing issued to 
date as per check-sheet will be transferred to the form 
"Abstract of Clothing Issued." The money value of the 
various articles issued, as stated on the abstract, will be 
computed at the established prices; and the aggregate value 
of issues will be stated on the abstract. This abstract will 
constitute the officer's voucher for dropping the clothing 
issued, from his returns: and the original will be forwarded 
to the officer in charge of the quartermaster's department, 
with the return; the duplicate will be filed with the retained 



return. The aggregate value of clothing issued, as per ttv j 
abstract of issues, less the value of any articles such as 
service-stripes, etc. that may have been issued gratuitously, 

should agree with the aggregate value of all issues as shown 
by the consolidated statement of issue-slips for the period 
involved, thus producing a check on the account. 

2. The modified system of accounting for clothing does 
not involve any changes in the method of keeping the cloth- 
ing-account roll, except that accounts on the clothing- 
account roll shall hereafter be numbered in one series, from 
1 up. and not by pages, as heretofore. The account of 
every enlisted man that appears on the clothing-account 
roll shall be given a separate number. The first name on the 
roll will be No. 1, the second 2, etc. The accounts will be 
numhered from 1 up. irrespective of the sheets of the roll. 
These numbers will not be changed during the quarter; 
but a new series will be started at the first of each quarter. 
The number of a man's account, as shown on the clothing- 
account roll, will appear on each of his issue-slips. 

3. Any details connected with the issue and accounting 
for clothing that may not be covered by these instructions 
will be carried out in accordance with printed instructions 
appearing on the blank forms provided for use in connection 
with the issue and accounting for clothing, and such de- 
tailed instructions as may be communicated by letter from 
the officer in charge of the quartermasters department 
from time to time. 

4. The modified system of accounting for clothing will be 
instituted at all posts of the Marine Corps and by marine 
detachments of vessels of the Navy to which the necessary 
blanks can be furnished by such time, on July 1st. next. 
The system will be inaugurated at posts and by marine de- 
tachments of vessels of the Navy that cannot be supplied 
with the necessary blanks by July 1st, next, on the first of 
the quarter beginning October 1. 1911.

Marine Corps Orders, HEADQUARTERS 

No. 23. U. S. MARINE CORPS. 

Washington. July £6, 1911. 

1. In view of the percentage of desertions in the Marine 
Corps, the Major-General Commandant is of the opinion 
that there are underlying causes, which, if known and class- 
ified, the conditions leading thereto might be corrected or 
ameliorated. 

2. In order, however, that the tabulation and classification 
made at these headquarters may be of any real value in re- 
flecting general conditions, the cooperation of all officers is 
required. At present, in ninety per cent, of all cases, the 
cause of desertion is entered in the service-record books as 
"Unknown." 

3. Whenever officers of the Marine Corps have occasion 
to close the staff-returns of a man by reason of desertion, 
they are directed to enter in the service-record book their 
opinion as to the probable cause of desertion; and the 
phrases ''Not known" or "Unknown" should not be used 
until every reasonable effort to discover the probable cause 
of desertion has been made. In this connection the opinion 
of the better class of non-commissioned officers should be 
called for; and where company organization is in effect the 
entry should be made by the company commander. 

4. Whenever a deserter surrenders or is apprehended, 
careful inquiry will be made to ascertain the true cause 
leading up to his desertion and report made to these head- 
quarters. 

W. P. BIDDLE, 
Major-General Commandant.

Marine Corps Orders, HEADQUARTERS 

No. 29. U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

Washington, August 29, 1911. 

1. In connection with Marine Corps Order No. 26, issued 
from these Headquarters August 1, 1911, particular atten- 
tion is called to the various sizes of all coats and trousers 
issued to the Corps. The sizes "long-," "medium," and 
"short" coats and trousers of different sizes are now made. 
The conformation of men varies. Some men with certain 
chest measurement, for example, require long- sleeves and 
waists, and others short sleeves and waists. Diversity also 
exists as to hips and seat measurement, etc. To provide 
for this diversity in the conformation of men, "long," 
"medium," and "short" coats and trousers are manufactur- 
ed. Complaint has been made that full-dress and undress 
coats part in front at the bottom. Experience shows in 
most cases that this parting in due to one of two causes — 
that the men have their coats taken in on the hips or seat, 
or that the coats issued are too small over the hips or seat. 
For illustration, a man may seem to require a No. 2 "long" 
undress coat; it is possible that a No. 3 "short" will fit bet- 
ter. Special care will be observed in the issue of garments. 

2. In all cases men will be required to try on garments 
before taking them. Trying on garments is important. It 
is the practical, surest way to obtain a fit. Owing to the 
increased number of sizes, the alteration of garments should 
not be necessary if careful attention is paid to trying on at 
time of issue. Garments will only be altered upon authority 
of the commanding marine officer. 

3. Reports having been made regarding the shrinkage of 
white linen garments after laundering, it is suggested that 
the following instructions be adhered to by laundresses, 
which, it is believed, will reduce or obviate the trouble 
complained of: Iron the garment before it is thoroughly 
dried out, and if dried before ironing, dampen well; then 
stretch well out, removing all wrinkles from the garment 
and bring the fiber of the material to its proper length, so 
that the face will be smooth. The garment will then be as 
long and as wide as before laundering. All patterns on 
which linen garments are cut are larger all over than any 
others, to provide for unavoidable shrinkage when first 
washed.

Major-General Commandant. 



Marine Corps Orders, HEADQUARTERS 

No. 30. U. S. MARINE CORPS. 

Washington. September 11, 1911. 

1. Hereafter recruiting- officers at recruiting- stations 
will not make enlistments or re-enlistments, except re-en- 
listments of members of their recruiting parties or such 
re-enlistments as may hereafter be authorized, but will ex- 
amine applicants physically, mentally, and morally to de- 
termine their fitness for the service, and will forward such 
applicants as they may deem qualified to such posts as may 
be ordered for final examination and enlistment if found 
qualified. 

2. Recruiting officers at recruiting stations may re-enlist 
members of their recruiting parties to be continued on duty 
with those parties without sending the men to posts for 
examination, provided that the re-enlistments are made 
within ten days after discharge, and the men are found 
qualified for service on examination by the recr jiting offi- 
cers. In such cases, the recruiting officers will complete 
the enlistment papers, finger-print cards, form for physical 
examination of recruits, and the service-record book, and 
forward enlistment papers direct to the Major-General 
Commandant. 

3. Immediately after the acceptance of an applicant by 
the recruiting officer, the latter will forward the man's en- 
listment paper to the commanding officer of the designated 
post, the applicant to follow as soon thereafter as practic- 
able. He will see that the application of the recruit and 
the certificate of the medidal examiner on the enlistment 
paper are properly filled out and signed. To prevent fraudu- 
lent enlistments at posts, finger-print cards must be forward- 
ed to the Major-General Commandant without any delay 
'whatever, so that they may be examined before there is any 
possibility of the man's being enlisted. 

4. The recruiting officers will be held to a strict responsi- 
bility for the acceptance and forwarding of men who may 
afterward be found unfitted or undesirable for the service; 
and officers who enlist such men will be held to a like 
responsibility. Recruiting officers will carry accepted appli- 
cants on their muster-rolls, under the heading of "Accepted 
Applicants on Probation," and will show, in the column of 
remarks, the place and the date of the application, the date 
of the transfer, and the place to which transferred. 

5. Upon the arrival of an accepted applicant for enlist- 
ment at a post, he will be immediately examined, and if 
found not qualified, immediately rejected. Applicants 



(2) 

found qualified will be enlisted within ten days of their 
arrival at the post. They will not, however, be enlisted 
immediately, but due time will be allowed for the examina- 
tion of the finger-print records and, in case of possibility of 
fraudulent enlistment, for the forwarding- of a report by 
these Headquarters as to the result of such examination. 
Should no such report arrive within three days for posts on 
the east coast, or within six days for posts on the west 
coast, the applicant may be enlisted. 

6. A recruiting officer of a post to which accepted appli- 
cants for enlistment are sent by recruiting- officers will sat- 
isfy himself as to the desirability of the applicant, and, if 
otherwise desirable, will have him thoroughly examined by 
the medical officer of the station, who should verify the 
medical certificate on the enlistment paper and make the 
necessary entries in the service-record book. In the event 
of errors in the medical examiner's certificate on the en- 
listment paper, the naval medical officer should correct it, 
as provided for in instructions in the service-record book. 

7. Should the applicant be accepted by a recruiting officer 
at the post, the latter will complete the enlistment by ad- 
ministering the oath, and otherwise complete the enlist- 
ment paper and service-record book. The date and the 
place of application as shown on the enlistment paper will 
be entered in the service-record book as the date and the 
place of enlistment; and the man will be so carried on the 
muster- and pay-rolls. Enlistment papers, on completion, 
will be forwarded at once direct to the Major-General 
Commandant. In the event of the rejection of any appli- 
cant for cause, the commanding officer will without delay 
furnish the applicant transportation and subsistence to his 
place of application. Where the cause of rejection is fraud 
committed at the time application was made, or otherwise 
committed, return transportation should not be furnished, 
except by authority of the Major-General Commandant. In 
all cases of rejected applicants, the papers will be forwarded 
to these Headquarters, the date and the cause of rejection 
being indicated in the papers. 

8. Accepted applicants for enlistment who are found unfit 
for the service on final examination at posts, will be re- 
garded as remaining under military observation until they 
have been returned to the recruiting station at which they 
were accepted, or until they shall have arrived at those 
stations after having been forwarded thereto. 

9. If, in the opinion of the commanding and medical offic- 
ers, the disqualification in the case of a rejected applicant 



3 

is of such character as should have been discovered by the 
recruiting- officer who accepted and forwarded the applicant 
to the post, the commanding officer will report by letter to 
the Major-General Commandant all the facts in the case. 

10. Accepted applicants for enlistment will be taken up, 
on their arrival at a post, for rations and quarters, but not 
for pay. If not enlisted or rejected before the end of the 
month, applicants will be taken up on the muster-rolls, 
under the subheading "Accepted Applicants on Probation"': 
all rejected applicants under the subheading- ''Rejected Ap- 
plicants.'" the cause and date of rejection being indicated: 
if enlisted, they will be taken up in the manner hereinbefore 
indicated: if they absent themselves without leave en route 
to the post, or prior to enlistment, they will be indicated 
on the muster-rolls as "Elopers." 

11. All Marine Corps orders or parts of orders conflicting 
with the above are revoked.

Marine Corps Orders, HEADQUARTERS 

No. 34. U. S. MARINE CORPS. 

Washington. September 26. 1911. 

1. In order that men may be qualified as soon as possible 
after the completion of the courses in rifle firing-, it is di- 
rected that on all rifle ranges a certain time be allowed each 
day during' the season, either before or after firing-, for the 
test in estimating- distance, and that men who have qualified 
in any of the courses in rifle firing- be g'iven the estimating- 
distance test the following- day. 

2. It is manifestly unjust that a man, having' qualified in 
any course, should be kept from drawing- the increased pay 
due therefor, owing- to the fact that he has not been given 
an opportunity to qualify in estimating- distance. 

3. Officers in charge of the various ranges will be held 
accountable for the strict observance of these instructions. 

By order of the Major-General Commandant: 

J. E. MAHONEY, 
Colonel, U. S. Murine Corps.

Marine Corps Orders. HEADQUARTERS 

No. 43. U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

Washington, October 23, 1911. 

1. Hereafter, in addition to the markings for professional 
qualifications and conduct now required to be entered in the 
service-record books (or descriptive books) of enlisted men, 
semiannual markings shall be entered on June 30th and 
December 31st. The record of offenses and punishments 
shall be made in the service-record book when the punish- 
ment is awarded and shall be signed (on transfer, deser- 
tion, etc., and semiannually) when the professional and 
conduct record is signed. \n accordance with the pro- 
visions of the Navy Regulations, markings given in conduct 
shall correspond to the record of the man as shown by the 
offenses committed and by the punishments adjudged during 
each period. 

2. For the first entry under Professional and Conduct 
Record at each .station or vessel, the column '"Station or 
Vessel" shall be filled out with the name of the station or 
vessel, and subsequent markings while at the same station 
or vessel will require no further entry in this column. Un- 
der the column * 'Transferred, Discharged, Deserted, etc.."' 
the abbreviation "semi-an." shall be entered for the semi- 
annual markings, followed by the date in its regular column. 

3. Markings on transfer shall be taken into consideration 
in making the next semiannual markings after transfer. 
The semiannual markings and the last marking, "For Dis- 
charge," shall be made in red ink, and these markings only 
shall be considered in obtaining final markings. 

4. Except when the first semiannual marking's cover a re- 
cruit service of less than three months, when these marks 
shall not be considered, the markings for discharge shall be 
an arithmetical average of all semiannual markings, and the 
character recommended shall be based upon this final mark- 
ing: the decimal system shall be used in entering marks, 
the averages being to the nearest tenth. Whenever a char- 
acter upon discharge is recommended that does not corres- 
pond to the final marking (and such a recommendation 
should be made when it appears that markings have been 
given the man that do not seem in accordance with the of- 
fenses recorded), or when it is desired to recommend a man 
for a good-conduct medal who has been convicted by a naval 
summary court-martial, the reasons therefor shall be given 
over the commanding officer's signature. 

5. In closing the service-record books and descriptive 
books of men now in the service, a mathematical average of 
all markings given prior to July 1, 1911, shall be obtained, 
taking into consideration the period of service at each 
place where markings were given: this average, combined 
with the semiannual markings given (beginning December 
31, 1911) and the last marking, "For Discharge," proper 
value being given to each according to length of time cov- 
ered, will give the final markings. 

6. At posts having a company organization the markings 
shall be entered personally and signed by the man's com- 
pany commander, who shall also make recommendations as 



(2) 

to good-conduct medals and bars. Commanding- officers of 
such posts shall satisfy themselves that company records 
are properly kept and that company commanders comply 
with the provisions of this order. In cases where the com- 
manding- officer of a post does not ag-ree with the markings 
for transfer or discharg-e, or the recommendations in regard 
to good-conduct medal or bar, his recommendations with 
reasons therefor, shall be given over his signature. 

7. As a separate medical record is now issued for every 
enlisted man, it is directed that, hereafter, when a man is 
transferred to another station or vessel, his service-record 
book be not sent to the medical officer for the entries re- 
quired by Article 998 (2), Navy Regulations, 1909, but that 
it be forwarded directly to the station or the vessel to which 
he is transferred. In the case of a transfer to a hospital or 
a hospital ship, the service-record book shall be retained at 
the station, or on board the vessel, to which the man is 
attached. No entry by the medical officer is required in the 
service-record book when a man's accounts are closed for 
discharge, retirement, death, or desertion.

Major-General Commandant .

Washington. October jj. 1911. 

DISCHARGE CERTIFICATES. 

1. Hereafter the discharge certificates of marines to be 
discharged upon expiration of enlistment and upon report 
of medical survey (disease or injury in the line of duty), will 
be prepared on parchment. Discharges in accordance with 
the sentence of a general court-martial, summary court- 
inartial, or other cases, where character '"bad" is given, 
will be prepared on yellow paper (N. M. C. 385). Discharges 
such as those issued upon reports of medical survey (disease 
or injury not in the line of duty), by purchase, upon settle- 
ment of accounts, because of undesirability. inaptitude, etc., 
where character other than bad is given, will be prepared 
on white paper (N. M.'C. 385-a). 

2. Except in the case of a man to be discharged in the 
Philippine Islands, Guam, or other place where specific au- 
thority to prepare discharge certificates and to award good- 
conduct insignia has been or may be given by the Major- 
General Commandant, all parchment discharges will be 
prepared at Marine Corps or Brigade Headquarters, and the 
certificate of good-conduct award thereon, if any, signed by 
the Major-General Commandant or brigade commander, the 
certificate being forwarded for completion and delivery, as 
at present, to the place where the man is serving. 

3. In cases of white or yellow discharge certificates, the 
certificate will be prepared (issued), as well as delivered, at 
the place where the man is serving, the discharge and the 
delivery certificate thereon being signed by the senior ma- 
rine officer of the post, station, or detachment. Where 
marine detachments on shore are in charge of non-commis- 
sioned officers, or in cases of marine detachments serving 
on board receiving or prison-ships, the marine will be trans- 
ferred without specific orders from these Headquarters to 
the nearest Marine Corps post commanded by a commissioned 
officer, for discharge, two weeks prior to the expiration of 
enlistment: in all other cases, upon recommendation for dis- 
charge. 

PAY AND CLOTHING ACCOUNTS. 

4. Immediately a man is recommended for discharge, a 
statement of his account for settlement on discharge (N. M. 
C. 90) will, except where the man is carried by a naval pay- 
master, be submitted, by the officer keeping the pay-rolfs. 
to the proper paymaster of the Corps, in which statement 
there will be credited or debited the amount then due or 
overdrawn on account of clothing. A settlement of the 
clothing account on N. M. C. 146, certified by the post- 
quartermaster, or other officer keeping the clothing account 
'roll, supporting this sum. must accompany N. M. C. 90. 
Where accounts of marines" on shore duty are carried by 
naval paymasters, N. M. C. 146, prepared as above indicated, 
but extended to include the date of discharge, will be fur- 
nished such paymasters. 

5. Post-quartermasters or other officers having charge of 
the clothing account roll, will invariably close a man's 
clothing account to the dates indicated in the preceding 



(2) 

paragraph, and furnish, at the same time, and in the same 
manner that now obtains, to the Officer in Charge of the 
Quartermaster's Department, proper papers showing the 
details of such settlement of clothing accounts. The Officer 
in Charge of the Quartermaster's Department will furnish 
to the Officer in Charge of the Paymaster's Department, on 
prescribed forms, as soon as practicable after the end of 
each month, but in no case longer than twenty (20) days 
thereafter, the result of his audit of certifications of post- 
quartermasters or officers keeping clothing account rolls, of 
balances on account of undrawn or overdrawn clothing. 

6. The Major-General Commandant or brigade commander 
will send to the pay-officer having the man's accounts a copy 
of the order sent to the commanding officer to prepare dis- 
charge certificates. Upon receipt of the copy of the order 
for discharge, the pay-officer will make final settlement, in- 
cluding therein, in addition to the credit or debit for un- 
drawn or overdrawn clothing theretofore certified by the 
post-quartermaster or officer keeping the clothing account 
rolls, the additional amount according to the prescribed 
scale of allowances for clothing due to the date of discharge, 
such date to be determined by the paymaster according to 
the time necessary to allow for the receipt of the final 
statement and check (if any) at the place of discharge. The 
officer delivering the discharge will, in all cases, enter 
therein the amount paid. The officer in charge of the Pay- 
master's Department will cause reports to be furnished to 
the Officer in Charge of the Quartermaster's Department 
covering the additional amounts credited for undrawn cloth- 
ing to date of discharge, as herein described. 

7. Pay and clothing accounts of men to be discharged 
upon expiration of enlistment, made out to include the day 
of discharge, will be forwarded to the proper paymaster at 
such time prior to the expiration of such enlistment as will 
enable the paymaster to make out and return final state- 
ments. The paymaster will make out the final statement, 
and will forward such statement with check, without further 
notification, to the man's commanding officer in time to 
reach him prior to the expiration of his enlistment. 

SERVICE-RECORD BOOKS. 

8. Service-record books of men to be discharged upon ex- 
piration of enlistment will be forwarded to Headquarters 
U. S. Marine Corps. All posts on the Atlantic coast, and 
recruiting stations east of the Mississippi River, will for- 
ward such books fifteen (15) days prior to the expiration of 
enlistment. All posts on the Pacific coast, and recruiting 
stations west of the Mississippi River, will forward such 
books twenty -five (25) days prior to the expiration of the en- 
listment. 

9. The service-record books of all men discharged for 
other causes will be retained at the post until the discharge 
certificate has been delivered, when they will be completed 
in accordance with instructions contained in the service- 
record books and orders, and forwarded to Headquarters.

MRIN1 CORPS OHDERS Series 1912. 



Marine Corps Orders, HEADQUARTERS 

Number 1. U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

(Series 1912). Washington, January 11, 1912. 

I. It is directed that, in making official reference, in cor- 
respondence or elsewhere, to the various printed orders and 
circulars issued by this office, the following' phraseology be 
employed: As to general orders of the period from Decem- 
ber 21, 1908, to March 25, 1911, "Marine Corps General 

Order No. ": as to special orders of the period from 

November 16, 1908, to March 23, 1911, "Marine Corps Special 

Order No "; as to circulars of the period from June 7, 

1910, to March 27. 1911, "Marine Corps Circular No "; 

as to Marine Corps Orders of the period from April 20, 1911, 

to December 31, 1911, "Marine Corps Order No , 

series 1911." Hereafter Marine Corps Orders will be desig- 
nated by their numbers, followed by the years representing 
the series to which they belong, as in the designation last 
above quoted. 

II. When an officer who has been detached from one sta- 
tion and ordered to another is granted leave of absence or 
authority to delay reporting at his new station, he will, on 
reporting for duty, inform his commanding officer of the 
inclusive dates of leave or of delay of which he may have 
availed himself, Articles 218 and 1530, U. S. Navy Regula- 
tions, 1909, being considered in connection therewith. This 
information will be embodied in the remarks, immediately 
after the entry of the fact of the officer's joining, on the 
first muster-roll on which his name appears at his new 
station. 

III. The second paragraph of Marine Corps General Order 
No. 22 is revoked. Bills of fare will only be submitted to 
these Headquarters when specially directed. 

W. P. BIDDLE, 
Major- General Commandant. 



Marine Corps Orders, HEADQUARTERS 

Number 2. U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

(Series 1912). Washington, January 12, 1912. 

1. In order to earn bars for requalifications as sharp- 
shooters, or expert riflemen, officers will be required to fire 
all the regular courses as though unqualified. An officer 
will only be entitled to a bar for the highest qualification 
previously attained by him. 

2. Attention is invited to the fact that all officers of the 
line of and below the grade' of captain are required to fire 
all the regular courses each year, and also the navy marks- 
man's course at least once a year. (Par. 28-c, G. O. 112, 
Navy Department, 1911.) 

3. Distinguished marksmen are not eligible for teams in 
post, interpost, or division competitions. They may fire in 
individual competitions, but, are nor, entitled to any prize for 
such firing. In the division competitions they will be graded 
in order of merit, but cannot win a medal or a place on the 
division team. 

4. This office intends to open the ranges at Winthrop and 
Saunders Range about April 15th, and at Wakefield about 
May 1st. Steps will be taken at once by commanding officers 
to have all men thoroughly instructed in the preliminary 
drills, and in Part I of the Marine Corps score-book; and it is 
directed that, wherever practicable, an officer be detailed 
to supervise this instruction. It has been found that men 
from posts where attention is given to the preliminary drills 
qualify in large numbers, while the percentage of men 
qualifying from posts where this important work is neg- 
lected is small. All of the preliminary drills, including 
instruction in Part I of the score-book and gallery practice, 
simulating- range firing in all its details to the greatest 
possible extent, can be carried on during the winter months 
with profitable results. 

W. P. BIDDLE, 
Major- General Commandant. 



Marine Corps Orders, EEADQUARTERS 

Number 3. U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

(Series 1912). Washington, March 16, 1912. 

1. The following instructions concerning deserters and 
stragglers will be observed in the future. Marine Corps 
General Order No. 3, Marine Corps General Order No. 12, 
and Marine Corps Order No. 23, Series of 1911, are hereby 
revoked. 

2. Every effort will be exerted to apprehend, bring to 
trial, and punish deserters from the Marine Corps. When 
an enlisted man is declared a deserter, the commanding 
officer of the post at which he has been serving shall imme- 
diately offer a reward of fifty dollars for his apprehension 
and delivery within two years of date of desertion at any 
marine barracks or at any recruiting office at which a 
marine officer is stationed (except the recruiting offices at 
New York, N. Y., and Philadelphia, Pa.) A list of such 
offices as at present existing is appended: and commanding 
officers will be notified from time to time as changes there- 
in occur. 

3. A copy of the reward will be sent to the Officer in 
Charge of the Quartermaster's Department; to the deser- 
ter's next of kin; to the mayor of the town where he resided 
at date of enlistment: to the headquarters station of the 
recruiting district in which he was accepted (provided he 
deserts within one year from date of enlistment); to the 
mayors of any other towns to which it is thought he may 
have proceeded, being guided by facts obtained from his mili- 
tary history, declarations to comrades, or any other source of 
information; and to such detective agencies as may from 
time to time be designated by Headquarters. 

4. Absence without leave, with a manifest intention not 
to return, is regarded as desertion; therefore, when the in- 
tention to desert is apparent, a reward will be offered im- 
mediately, without awaiting the expiration of ten days. 

5. In order to have at hand and immediately available for 
use before general courts-martial the necessary evidence 
for the trial of enlisted men of the Marine Corps who have 
been declared deserters, and to aid courts-martial in deter- 
mining whether such men are guilty of desertion or absence 
without leave, it is directed that upon desertion entries be 
made in service-record books of such of the following cir- 
cumstances attending the desertion as may be known: 

Disposal of effects, especially uniforms. 

Secret preparations for desertion. 

Procuring plain clothes. 

Declarations to comrades. 

A known desire to quit the service. 

Taking passage for a distant point. 

Escaping from arrest. 

The commission of an offense and fear of punishment. 



(2) 
A report as to whether a deserter left any effects of value 
is the one most easily ascertainable. 

6. The entries "Not known" and "Unknown" shall not be 
inserted in the service-record book until every reasonable 
effort has been made to discover the probable cause of de- 
sertion. In this connection the opinion of the better class 
of noncommissioned officers should be called for. Where 
company organization is in effect, the entry should be made 
by the company commander. Entry should also be made in 
the service-record book of the hour and date, place or port 
of desertion, and that a reward has been offered. A copy of 
the reward offered shall be forwarded with the book to 
Headquarters. 

7. Whenever a deserter surrenders or is apprehended, 
careful inquiry shall be made to ascertain the true cause 
leading up to his desertion and report made to these Head- 
quarters, the report to include statements in regard to the 
following points: 

The manner of his return, whether forced or volun- 
tary, and if voluntary, whether through fear of 
arrest. 
The physical condition of the person so returned, as 

stated by the medical officer. 
Statements made to prove identity. 
Statements on surrender as to whether he is a deser- 
ter or a straggler. 
Whether in plain clothes or in uniform upon return. 
Condition of clothing, whether adequate or not for 
the season and part of the country from which re- 
turned, and whether ragged or not. 

8. The officer receiving a deserter shall satisfy himself 
that the man is a deserter and that he is the person he is 
represented to be, and, if any doubt exists with respect to 
his identity, shall telegraph his personal description and 
statement of service claimed to Headquarters with a request 
for verification. When the identity of a deserter is estab- 
lished, the commanding officer of the post or recruiting 
officer shall prepare the necessary vouchers for the pay- 
ment of the reward and forward them to the nearest dis- 
bursing officer of the Quartermaster's Department for pay- 
ment. Wherever practicable, a copy of the offer of reward, 
including the description of the man, will accompany the 
voucher. The disbursing officer of the Quartermaster's De- 
partment receiving such voucher shall, if the same be in 
due form, make the necessary payment. Deserters shall be 
taken up for pay on the rolls of the post or recruiting dis- 
trict where received, pursuant to the provisions of Article 
1366, paragraph 4, Navy Regulations, 1909. Checkages of 
the amount of the reward offered shall be noted on said pay- 
rolls, a certificate to this effect being made on the face of 
the vouchers covering the reward before their transmittal 



(3) 
to the disbursing officer of the Quartermaster's Department. 
Checkages shall also be noted on the pay-rolls of all amounts 
expended by the Government incident to the apprehension 
and return to barracks of the deserter, including medical 
examination, transportation, subsistence, telegrams, etc., 
and the officer noting these checkages on the pay-rolls shall 
notify the Officer in Charge of the Quartermaster's Depart- 
ment to the end that the proper appropriations may be re- 
imbursed. 

9. The officer receiving a deserter shall cause him to be 
examined by a medical officer (or at a recruiting office, by 
the medical examiner); if physically unfit, he will telegraph 
to Headquarters, when a discharge as "'unfit" will be pre- 
pared and mailed for delivery. By physical unfitness in a 
deserter is meant that degree of unfitness resulting from 
disease or disability which would render him, in case of his 
return to the Marine Corps authorities, a menace to the 
health of those with whom he would come in contact, or 
which would put the Government to a greater expense in 
his care and treatment than would be warranted by the 
benefit accruing to the service by reason of his punishment. 
The test of unfitness in the case of a deserter is entirely 
different from the standard set in the case of an applicant 
for enlistment. While such disabilities as loss of fingers, 
flat feet, under weight, impaired vision or hearing, loss of 
teeth, varicose veins, etc., would cause the rejection of an 
applicant for enlistment, their existence in a deserter will 
not render him unfit and should not constitute a reason why 
he should escape punishment. To constitute unfitness in a 
deserter there must exist disabilities or diseases of a more 
serious and vital nature, such as insanity, tuberculosis, 
appendicitis, diseases af a contagious nature, etc. Again, a 
distinction should be made between deserters for whom a 
reward has been paid for delivery and those who voluntarily 
surrendered: in the former case, i, e. where a reward has 
been paid for delivery, the deserter will not be pronounced 
1 -unfit" except as above outlined, while, in the latter case, 
where the deserter voluntarily surrenders, he will be pro- 
nounced "unfit" if the disability be such as would unques- 
tionably preclude enlistment. In either case, the medical 
examiner should assure himself that the man is not feigning 
disability. 

10. If surrendered at a recruiting office and the medical 
examiner pronounces the deserter physically fit, the recruit- 
ing officer shall, if he has a proper guard available, im- 
mediately transfer the deserter to the nearest marine bar- 
racks without further orders. If no guard be available at 
the recruiting office, the recruiting officer shall telegraph 
to the commanding officer of the nearest barracks request- 



(4) 
ing that a guard be furnished for this purpose, and the 
commanding* officer of the marine barracks receiving- such 
a telegram is hereby authorized, without reference to these 
Headquarters, to send the guard as requested. 

11. No articles of outer uniform clothing other than such 
as may be necessary to enable' them to appear decently clad, 
shall be issued to enlisted men who surrender, or who are 
delivered as stragglers or deserters and who are to be re- 
commended for trial by general court-martial. Such men 
shall be retained in confinement and in cases of conviction 
shall be transferred to prison in the clothing worn by them 
when received into the custody of the Marine Corps author- 
ities. 

12. When a straggler from another post is apprehended 
or surrenders within ten days from the time of his original 
absence, the commanding officer of the barracks from which 
he is absent shall be notified immediately by telegraph. 

13. Upon the receipt of such a telegram the commanding- 
officer shall retain the staff-returns until orders as to their 
disposition are received from Headquarters. 

14. When an enlisted man who has been absent without 
leave for any cause for a greater period than thirty days is 
delivered or apprehended, or one who has been so absent 
for a greater period than ninety days surrenders or delivers 
himself at a post, a full report on the case shall be made to 
Headquarters, accompanied by a written statement by the 
man, a list of witnesses, and, if practicable, statements of 
his accounts from the date of delivery or surrender to the 
date of report. No disciplinary action in the case shall be 
taken until instructions from Headquarters are received.

Marine Corps Orders, HEADQUARTERS 

Number 5. U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

(Series 1912). Washington, April 10, 1912. 

1. Referring- to paragraph 3 of Marine Corps Order No. 3 
(Series 1912), March 16, 1912, wherein it is directed that, up- 
on the desertion of an enlisted man, a copy of the reward 
offered be mailed to the headquarters station of the recruit- 
ing district in which he was accepted (provided he deserts 
within one year from date of enlistment), there is appended 
a list showing- the territory of the United States comprised 
within the several recruiting- districts. This information is 
furnished in order that commanding- officers may know to 
which headquarters station to send copies of the reward 
offered when a man accepted at a station other than the 
headquarters station deserts. When men enlisted in local- 
ities other than those set forth in the list desert, no copy of 
reward need be sent, the districts in the localities in ques- 
tion having- been discontinued. 

2. It is realized that the information furnished in the ap- 
pended list is more or less indefinite. However, it is the 
intention of Headquarters to furnish commanding- officers a 
monthly statement of recruiting which will show the differ- 
ent stations in the several recruiting districts; it will then 
be possible, by reference to this statement, to ascertain with 
accuracy the district in which a future deserter was accepted.

Marine Corps Orders, HEADQUARTERS 

No. 6. U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

(Series 1912). Washington, May 6, 1912. 

1. It is desired that, as far as practicable, the sea and 
foreign service of enlisted men of the Marine Corps be equal- 
ized and that men be not permitted to perform a large pro- 
portion of foreign service, with the attendant increased pay 
and time for retirement, to the exclusion of others. It is 
therefore directed that commanding- marine officers, when 
detailing- men for foreign service, shall not, without specific 
authority from these Headquarters, select any man who has 
not thirty-four months to serve in his current enlistment, 
nor, in the case of re-enlisted men, any one who, in his pre- 
ceding- enlistment, completed two years' foreign service. 
Commanding officers will obtain from the man concerned 
the information as to foreign service performed, verifying, 
if possible, this information from his discharge certificate. 
Hereafter recruiting officers will enter in the service-record 
book the amount of foreign service performed by men in 
their preceding' enlistment. In the new service-record book 
a space will be provided for this purpose. 

2. When enlisted men are transferred by staff-returns 
from any post or detachment, the marine officer or non-com- 
missioned officer in command thereof, when transmitting 
their staff-returns, will inform the commanding officer of 
the post or vessel to which the transfers are made as to the 
time at which the men so transferred may be expected to 
arrive, and also as to the cause of any delay that may be 
anticipated. 

3. Paragraph 12, Marine Corps Order No. 3 (Series 1912), 
is amended to read as follows: 

When a straggler from another post is apprehended or 
surrenders within ten days from the time of his original 
absence, the commanding officer of the barracks from which 
he is absent shall be notified immediately by telegraph, 
GIVING THE DATE AND HOUR OF DELIVERY OR 
SURRENDER.

Major-General Commandant. 



Marine Corps Orders, HEADQUARTERS 

Number 7. U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

(Series 1912). Washington, May 6, 1912. 

1. It having- been brought to the attention of these Head- 
quarters that the field hats of officers and men are in many 
instances improperly shaped after issue, it is hereby direct- 
ed that the field hat shall be worn in the shape issued by 
the Quartermaster, with the crown creased from front to 
rear. This crease will not be pinched tog-ether, nor will 
any other change in the hat as issued be permitted, except 
a slight turning down of the brim in front to protect the 
eyes from the sun. The hat ornament will be fastened in 
its proper place and through only one thickness of the hat. 

2. Commanding officers of organizations, posts or detach- 
ments will be held accountable that the campaign hats are 
worn in the shape above prescribed, requiring, if necessary, 
that new hats be procured. 

W. P. BIDDLE, 

Major-General Commandant. 



Marine Corps Orders, HEADQUARTERS 

Number 8. U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

(Series 1912). Washington, May 21, 1912. 

In order to carry into effect the provisions of Navy De- 
partment General Order No. 181, of May 4, 1912, the follow- 
ing instructions are hereby issued to take effect from July 
1, 1912: 

to the officer in charge of the adjutant and 
inspector's department. 

1. (a) The officer in charge of the adjutant and inspector's 
department will prepare at once, for distribution to the 
service before July 1, 1912, a blank form, consisting of one 
or two sheets as may be necessary, for insertion in the 
service record book of each man now in the service, which 
form is intended to show at all times the state of the man's 
pay account, as shown by the pay roll upon which his 
account was last audited and settled by a paymaster, suffi- 
cient space being provided to cover monthly entries for an 
entire enlistment, in such form as (with the approval of the 
Major General Commandant) will meet the requirements of 
the Paymaster's Department, U. S. Marine Corps. 

(b) The supply of service record books now on hand will, 
before distribution to the service, be provided with this 
additional sheet or sheets, and all future issues of such 
books will contain additional pages designed for this purpose. 

(c) The deck and summary court memorandum slips (form 
N. M. C. 512 and 517) now required by Marine Corps Gen- 
eral Orders Nos. 28 and 34, to be furnished the adjutant and 
inspector's department and the Auditor for the Navy De- 
partment, will be changed to read "Loss of pay $ 

noted in service record book." 

TO COMMANDING OFFICERS OF MARINES ASHORE 
AND AFLOAT. 

2. (a) Commanding Officers, charged with the keeping of 
the "service record book" of any marine, will, immediately 
after the payment of each monthly pay roll (beginning with 
the roll for June, 1912), cause to be entered and verified, 
without delay, in the space provided in the "service record 
book," a record of the payment or settlement as shown by 
the pay roll as audited and settled by the paymaster con- 
cerned, entering balances "Overpaid" or "Unpaid," if any; 
and if none, entering by means of stamp the words "Paid in 
full "through the space provided for the entering of such bal- 
ances. To prevent the possibility of alterations or erasures, 
where balances are shown, care should be taken at the time 
of transfer to see that such balances agree with the pay roll 
upon which last settlement appears. If transfer occurs after 
submission of the pay roll but before settlement is made, 
the amount stated for payment will be shown in the "service 



(2) 
record book" as " due and unpaid", and in the event that 
an error is developed upon the paymaster's audit of the roll 
in any balance overpaid or unpaid, so noted in the "service 
record book," the paymaster concerned will immediately, 
upon being informed of the transfer, request a checkage or 
credit of the necessary amount properly to adjust the error 
in question. 

(b) Upon the transfer of any enlisted man, detachment, or 
organization of marines, to or from any ship, station, orga- 
nization, or to expeditionary service, the commanding offi- 
cer of marines will furnish the paymaster of the ship or 
station from which the transfer is made, with a copy of his 
report of transfers as rendered on form N. M. C. 312, to the 
adjutant and inspector's department, U. S. Marine Corps. 

(c) Commanding officers are directed to comply strictly 
with the provisions of Navy Regulations governing transfers 
of enlisted men of the Marine Corps, and also with the latter 
portion of paragraph 2 of the Department's order above 
mentioned. 

(d) All charges to be made against the accounts of enlisted 
men transferred, that are not required to be noted in the 
"service record book", such as lost property, excessive 
issue of clothing, etc., will be made the subject of a request 
for checkage, forwarded through official channels, by the 
post quartermaster or other officer responsible therefor. 

(e) Upon the transfer of any man from a post or station to 
another, or to a ship, the commanding officer will note, in 
the space provided in the "service record book," the amount 
of the man's indebtedness to the post exchange at the time 
of transfer, and, when such indebtedness is in excess of the 
authorized allowance, will make such additional explanatory 
notes in the column of "Remarks" thereon as may be re- 
quired to insure a prompt settlement of the same. Such 
notation will be the succeeding commanding officer's autho- 
rity for entering the sum stated, as a checkage against the 
man's account, upon the first pay roll rendered subsequent 
to transfer, or, in the event of the death, discharge, or de- 
sertion of the man prior thereto, upon the account as closed 
thereby, noting over the amount the name of the post ex- 
change on whose account the checkage is made. Upon 
transfer between organizations at the same post, or station, 
the notation of post exchange dues, in "service record book," 
will not be required. 

(/) To enable the pay officers of ships or stations, carrying 
the rolls of enlisted men, to transfer the accounts of dead 
men, deserters, and general court-martial prisoners to the 
Auditor for the Navy Department, to the deserters' roll at 
Headquarters U. S. Marine Corps, and to naval prisons, 



(3) 
respectively, as well as to enable them to prepare final 
settlements preliminary to discharge, commanding officers 
of marines will furnish such pay officers with a detailed 
statement of account in all such cases, prepared on form N. 
M. C. 90. revised. 

(g) Commanding officers of marines afloat, in initiating the 
new system of rendering pay rolls of marines aboard ship, 
as provided in Navy Department General Order No. 181, 
dated May •!, 1912, will obtain from the pay officer of the 
ship such information from the rolls for the quarter ending 
June 30, 1912, as will enable them to make the necessary 
entries in the "service record book." Subsequent entries 
should be verified, where necessary, in like manner. 

(h) In the event of the loss of the "service record book" 
of any man en route between ships or stations on transfer, 
the commanding officer of the post or detachment where the 
marine joins will immediately apply to the man's previous 
commanding officer for the data necessary to take up the 
account properly on his rolls. In the meantime (while 
awaiting this information) the man's name will be taken up 
on each roll rendered, subsequent to his joining, with the 
following notation under "Remarks": "No account received, 
application made therefor , 191..." 

TO POST QUARTERMASTERS OR OTHER OFFICERS CHARGED 

WITH THE KEEPING OF PUBLIC PROPERTY, AND 

POST EXCHANGE OFFICERS. 

3. (a) The post quartermaster and post exchange officer 
will keep themselves informed of the names of men leaving 
the post by transfer, who may be in debt to the Government 
for quartermaster stores, or to the post exchange for serv- 
ices, etc.; and will prepare, when it is necessary to obtain 
the signatures of the men in acknowledgment of indebted- 
ness for lost property, excessive issues of clothing, post ex- 
change dues, etc., vouchers or statements of charges in each 
case, in due time to procure the signatures of such men 
thereon, before they leave the post. In the case of quarter- 
master stores the statement of charges will be transmitted, 
through official channels, for checkage against their ac- 
counts on the next succeeding pay roll, to the commanding 
officer of the post, or detachment, to which the men are 
transferred; but in the case of post exchange dues the 
amount thereof will be noted, in the space provided, in each 
man's "service record book" for checkage in like manner. 

(6) The collection of post exchange dues of men trans- 
ferred to ships will be made through the paymaster of the 
post concerned, on monthly vouchers as heretofore, after 
checkages have been noted in the "service record book" as 
above required, and proper evidence thereof has been filed 
with the paymaster's voucher covering the same. In the 



(4) 
ior< 

made through the paymaster of the post on whose rolls the 
checkages appear; payments in such cases to be made from 
the data on rolls, without additional voucher, when the ac- 
counts are properly stated and signed by the men concerned. 
(c) In the event of any man's failure or refusal to sign an 
acknowledgment of his indebtedness to the post exchange, 
there will be filed with the pay roll or attached to the post 
exchange voucher, as the case may be, the man's receipts, 
chits, or checks, etc., necessary to cover the amount of the 
indebtedness it is claimed is due the exchange on his ac- 
count; if this is impracticable, a proper certificate by a dis- 
interested officer will likewise be filed. In the event of any 
man's refusal to sign an acknowledgment of his responsi- 
bility for lost or damaged public property, a certificate of a 
disinterested officer, detailed to investigate the circum- 
stances of the loss or damage of the public property in ques- 
tion, will be procured in the proper form, and forwarded 
with the request for checkage to the commanding officer of 
the post or organization to which the man was transferred. 

TO THE OFFICER IN CHARGE OF THE PAYMASTER'S 
DEPARTMENT. 

4. (a) The officer in charge of the paymaster's department 
will make such changes in the vouchers, forms and proce- 
dure of his department as are necessary to carry into effect 
the purpose and provisions of this and the Department's 
regulations and orders on the subject, submitting such as 
may require it to this office for its approval, or for the appro- 
val of the Comptroller of the Treasury, under the act of July 
31, 1894, as the case may require. 

(b) He will issue such detailed instructions to the subor- 
dinate officers of his department as may be necessary to in- 
sure the proper initiation and operation of the new system 
of accounts and transfers, and will further report to this 
office for action, when occasion requires, the failure of any 
marine officer ashore or afloat to comply with the regula- 
tions and orders on this subject.

(Series 1912). Washington. Nov. 8, 1912. 

1. An enlisted man of the Marine Corps who selects, under 
the Act approved August 24, 1912, transportation and sub- 
sistence in kind upon discharge, will be furnished, under 
direction of commanding- officers of marines, and by the 
proper post-quartermaster or other representative of the 
quartermaster's department, with railway ticket, meal- 
tickets, transfers of baggage to the amount allowed by the 
railway companies upon railway tickets, sleeping-car accom- 
modations as prescribed by the System of Accountability. 
U. S. Marine Corps, and cash for all necessary transfers of 
the man and his baggage, to the place designated as the 
terminus of the journey in final statements (N. M. C. 423) 
issued by the paymaster's department. But cash will not 
be advanced for local baggage delivery, nor for transportation 
of the man at said terminus. 

2. N. M. C. 90, as prepared at the post where the dis- 
charge is to occur; will include, under remarks, a statement 
of the man's desire, i. e., whether he selects (1) mileage at 
two cents per mile to place of enlistment, (2) transportation 
and subsistence thereto. (3) transportation and subsistence 
to a designated place not greater in distance than the place 
of enlistment. The final statements in the case (N. M. C. 
423 1 as prepared by the paymaster's department will have 
entered therein (based upon the data contained in N. M. C. 
90, if such accords with the law, otherwise, a properly desig- 
nated place) the words, "Transportation and subsistense to 
be furnished to (naming the proper place)." 

3. When the discharge is effected in any case, N. M. C. 
423, as returned to the proper officer of the paymaster's de- 
partment, over the signature of the commanding officer 
effecting the discharge, will describe the transportation as 
furnished, the number of meal-tickets issued, and the 
amount of cash, if any, advanced for transfers as here 
authorized.

the quarterrnasier's department in these cases, will have 
marked thereon "To be billed to (naming the office of the 
officer of the paymaster's department issuing N. M.C.423)." 
Transportation requests and meal-tickets so issued and 
cash advanced for transfers will be accounted for by the 
issuing officer in the same manner as now obtains. The 
proper disbursing officers of the quartermaster's department 
will take credit for the cash so advanced, by charging same, 
in their accounts as rendered to the Treasury Department, 
to "Pay Marine Corps"; and quarterly reports, in detail, 
will be made by them through the officer in charge, quarter- 
master's department, to the officer in charge, paymaster's 
department, these Headquarters.

MURINE CORPS ORDERS Series 1913 



Marine Corps Orders. HEADQUARTERS 

Number 1. U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

(Series 1913). Washington, Jan. 13, 1913. 

1. The following excerpts from a decision of the Comp- 
troller of the Treasury, dated December 18, 1912, are pub- 
lished for the information and guidance of all concerned: — 

"a. To what place is an enlisted man entitled to 
pay on discharge? 

"I think it may be regarded as well settled that 
the place to which an enlisted man of the Marine 
Corps is entitled to travel pay on discharge is the 
place at which he offers himself for enlistment and 
takes the initial steps towards entering the service, 
regardless of the fact that he may be transported to 
some other place before executing the formal con- 
tract of enlistment and taking the oath of allegiance 
(56 MS. Comp. Dec. 1006; March 4, 1911). This is in 
harmony with the general policy of the Government 
in dealing with its discharged soldiers, and the right 
to be returned at Government expense to such place 
is not dependent upon the right to pay from the date 
of making application for enlistment. 

"6 From what date is a man enlisting in the 
Marine Corps for the first time entitled to be paid? 

"I have to advise you that the date from which 
an enlisted man of the Marine Corps is entitled to be 
paid is the date upon which he takes the oath of al- 
legiance, except in those rare cases where it is 
affirmatively shown that the enlistment contract 
was completed and the man's status changed from 
that of a civilian to that of a soldier by some act 
other than the taking of the oath, such as actual en- 
try upon duty with the knowledge and consent of the 
proper authorities, in which cases payment should 
be allowed from the date of such act regardless of 
the date of application. " 

2. In view of the foregoing, the place of application will, 
in the case of future enlistments, be recorded in the man's 
service-record book and other records as the place of enlist- 
ment: and the date upon which the oath of allegiance is 
taken will be recorded as the date of enlistment. 

3. The Adjutant and Inspector's Department will make 
the necessary changes in the records of the enlisted men 
now in the Corps who are affected by the Comptroller's de- 
cision, and will notify the commanding officers of posts and 
detachments accordingly . 

W. P. BIDDLE, 
Major -General Commandant. 



Correction of HEADQUARTERS 

Marine Corps Orders, U. S. MARINE CORPS, 

Number 1. (Series 1913). Washington, Jan. 29, 1913. 

1. Strike out paragraph 2 of Marine Corps Orders No. 1 
(current series) and substitute the following: 

2. In case of future enlistments, the place and 
date of the taking of the oath of allegiance will be 
recorded in the man's service-record book and other 
records as the place and date of enlistment. On page 
1 of the service-record books, in the space below 
"Place of Birth," an additional entry, ''Applied for 
enlistment at," will be made, followed by the name 
of the place where the man offered himself for en- 
listment and signed the declaration on the enlist- 
ment paper. In discharge certificates hereafter 
issued, if the place of application is not the same as 
the place of oath (enlistment), there will be made 
in the space above the line "Given under my hand" 
an entry reading "Applied for enlistment at," 
adding the place of application.

details of cooks or messmen will be permitted on inter- 
mediate days of the month, except to fill a vacancy caused 
by transfer, discharge, death, or desertion, or where the 
ration-strength of the command is increased by 25 per cent 
of the number as shown on the first day of the month, nor 
thereafter, except upon a like increase. 

4. Mess-sergeants are authorized as follows: 

(a) One for each company mess, where detachments

appear as such upon muster-rolls rendered to these 
headquarters, and upon pay-rolls of the paymaster's 
department. 

(b) Where detachments of such companies mess 
separately , in number habitually greater than twenty- 
five, one additional mess-sergeant is allowed. 

(c) Mess-sergeants will habitually be detailed 
from the grade of sergeant. 

(d) The above provisions for mess-sergeants do not 
apply to companies organized at posts within the 
United States, except where specifically authorized 
by the Commandant of the Corps. 

(e) Where organizations or detachments are merg- 
ed into a general mess, or where there is no com- 
pany organization such as described in paragraph (a), 
mess-sergeants will not be detailed; but additional 
compensation will be given a mess-steward, one for 
each general mess, as provided in paragraph 333, U. 
S. Army Regulations, 1910. 

5. Cooks will be detailed from the grade of private in all 
cases; and in no case will men receiving extra compensation 
as such be detailed on, or receive additional pay for, any 
other special duty. In detailing cooks, the following appor- 
tionment will be observed: 

la) 50 men or under, serving separately, 1 first-

1. Whenever supplies of any kind are purchased for use 
at a post, and are furnished from other than a Government 
source, the officer who will be accountable therefor will 
himself sign in advance an order for each delivery and keep 
a copy thereof in his office. In case a telephonic order is 
necessary, a signed memorandum of such order will be kept. 
In case of an emergency when supplies are required and the 
accountable officer is not present at the post, the order for 
said supplies can be signed by an officer detailed for this 
purpose by the commanding officer, but in no case shall 
orders be signed by an enlisted man. 

2. Commanding Officers will require that all such supplies, 
upon delivery, be inspected by a commissioned officer, who, 
when practicable, will be other than the accountable officer. 
The inspecting officer will personally satisfy himself as to 
the quantity and quality of each article received, and certify 
the fact over his official signature, and at once deliver the 
certificate to the accountable officer. The certificate will 
be checked and compared with the retained copy of the 
order and filed together for subsequent comparison with 
dealers' bills. These certificates will be kept on file until 
the next inspection by an officer of the adjutant and inspec- 
tor's department. 

3. Only commissioned officers will have custody of or con- 
trol over this record of supplies received. 

4. Nothing herein contained will in any way relieve the 
accountable officers or their subordinates of their responsi- 
bility in the premises. 

5. To avoid the necessity of sending to the Dead Letter 
Office mail for enlisted men received at Headquarters after 
discharge, commanding officers will ascertain from men 
about to be discharged the address at which mail will reach 
them after discharge, and will report such address in the 
"Remarks"columnof ''Reports of Transfers and Discharges" 
(N. M. C. 312). Commanding officers will also furnish men 
about to be discharged with three oi* more cards (N. M. C. 
684), to be used by them in reporting to Headquarters any 
change in their address for a peroid of three months after 
discharge. 

6. A supply of the necessary cards will be furnished by the 
adjutant and inspector's department.

1. Commanding officers of marines at shore stations paid 
by an officer of the paymaster's department of the Marine 
Corps, other than those paid form the headquarters office of the 
paymaster's department, will retain the third copy of the pay- 
roll until payment of the command on the pay-roll for the 
next succeeding- month shall have been completed. The 
third copy shall then be forwarded to the officer making 
the payment, with the original roll upon which payment 
has just been completed. The rolls for January, February, 
and March will be forwarded immediately after the pay- 
ment for April, 1914. 

2. The officer of the paymaster's department receiving 
these retained rolls will compare them with the originals 
and certify in the place provided thereon that they are true 
copies of the rolls upon which payment was made, whereup- 
on he will transmit the third copies of all said rolls, with 
the originals, as a part of his returns for the month in which 
they were paid, to the officer in charge of the paymaster's 
department. 

3. A fourth copy of pay-rolls for retention at the post 
will not be necessary, as such data as may infrequently be 
needed for future verification or reference should be made 
on the pay-roll-data cards, which are supplied by the pay- 
master's department to all commanding officers desiring 
them. 

4. Should it be necessary at any time to know the exact 
state of facts and the precise state of a man's account as it 
appeared on the pay-roll, such can be had upon application 
to the proper officer of the paymaster's department for a 
certified extract or transcript from the account as it is 
shown on the roll.

exchange debts of deserters against their forfeited pay are, 
in consideration of a decision of the Comptroller of the 
Treasury, of March 17, 1914, revoked. 

2. Hereafter the amount of a deserter's indebtedness to a 
post exchange will not be checked against his pay upon 
transfer to the deserters' roll. In lieu thereof, the pay ac- 
counts (N. M. C. 90, as prepared by the commanding officer, 
and N. M. C. 40 or 41, as prepared by the paymaster), and 
the deserters' roll will contain under "Remarks" a note 
of the amount of their debts not previously checked, and 
the name of the post exchanges to which same are due. 

3 Upon the transfer of an account from the deserters' 
roll, the amount of post exchange indebtedness will be noted 
under "Remarks" upon transfer pay accounts, as: "Check 

$ , P. E. Des. Roll." The amount thus noted will be 

checked in the column for "Miscellaneous Clieckages" on 
the first pay roll upon which the man's account appears sub- 
sequent to receipt of accounts from the deserters' roll, writ- 
ing over the checkage the notation: "P. E. Des. Roll," as 
shown on the transfer pay accounts directing the checkage. 

4. The officer in charge of the paymaster's department 
will amend the "Instructions Governing Post Exchange 
Collections and Checkages," as published by Headquarters

commands have special qualifications in employments other 
than their strictly military duties, it is directed that, here- 
after, in preparing service-record books upon transfer, no- 
tation of a man's special qualifications, if he has any, be 
made on the page provided for extra and special-duty details. 
This can be done, in most instances, by using care in filling 
out the column under "Manner of Performing Duty — Why 
Relieved." 

2. In preparing discharge certificates upon expiration of 
enlistment, notation will be made, under "Remarks," of the 
employment other than military duty for which the man is 
best adapted, as shown by his service-record book. 

3. Upon the reenlistment of a man, the employment for 
which he is best suited, as given on his discharge-certificate, 
will be entered on page one of his service-record book as the 
second entry under "Occupation Prior to Entering the Mili- 
tary or Naval Service"; e. g., "Plumber's helper — Is good 
plumber"; "Laborer — Is good cook," etc. 

4. This order does not require that any additional entry 
be made in a man's service-record book, or upon his dis- 
charge-certificate, unless he has been found to have special 
qualifications of the character mentioned.

purpose of assimilation of their continuous service pay to 
that of enlisted men of the Army, not entitled to credit for 
time loist a<s specified iti th© atsfc of April J27, 1014. 

2. In accordance therewith, in the computation of enlist- 
ment periods of marines terminating 1 prior to April 27, 1914, 
for the purpose of determining the date they are entitled to 
continuous service pay, credit should be denied to them for 
time lost only by unauthorized absences in excess of one 
day, as heretofore; while, in the computation of enlistment 
periods terminating" subsequent to April 27. 1914, for the 
same purpose, credit should be denied for all periods of time 
lost by unauthorized absences in excess of one day, on ac- 
count'of disease resulting from intemperate use of drugs or 
alcoholic liquors or otb.Br misconduct, while in confinement 
awaiting* trial or disposition of the case if the trial results 
in conviction, and while in confinement under sentence. 

3. In the preparation of all pay rolls of enlisted men of 
the Marine Corps next after the receipt of this order, in all 
cases where continuous service pay has been or is being 
there credited, the complete service record showing all dates 
of enlistment, reenlistment and discharge should be set forth 
thereon, with the appropriate information under '"Re- 
marks" on the rolls in the particular case, viz: — "No time 
lost for causes as specified in M. C. O. No 15, dated Septem- 
ber 28. 1914," or, if the case require, " days lost for 

causes as specified in M. C. O. No. 15, dated September 28, 
1914." The continuous service pay in these cases should be 
adjusted on said pay rolls in accordance with the terms of 
these instructions. 

4. All Service Record Books should-have entered therein 
in the appropriate place, information in detail as to the 
periods of time lost in current enlistments as herein speci- 
fied.' Where this information in any particular case is un- 
known to commanding officers, a proper application should 
be made to these Headquarters in order that the missing 
data may be supplied and at once duly entered. \ 

5. Hereafter, all discharge certificates as prepared will 1 

have entered thereon " days lost for causes as specified i 

in Marine Corps Order No. 16, dated September 28, 1914." 1
